We believe in keeping animals in modern, naturalistic enclosures in accordance with best practice. It is important for us to give priority to species that are threatened in the wild. That is why it is also a mission to increase understanding of the issues involved in conservation and the breeding of endangered species. Another mission is developing and maintaining an education program from pre-school to degree level by for example promoting care for environment through education and leading by example. By doing this we increase the public awareness and understanding of species and their welfare. Other missions that we have are developing the role of the zoo ( Curacao Zoo – [Parke Tropikal] ) as a center for research, playing a significant role nationally and internationally and creating self-sustainability.
