Initially, the Tashkent Zoo was located in the former country-house of the Governor-General of Turkiston. The year of its foundation is 1924.At that time ther were few animals there and they were located side by side with the museum.

 

On three hectares of land the animals were at ease, but later their number increased to more than 200 species, which necessitated the expansion of its territory. In the modern city zoo brought some inconveniences to the residents, for example, because of the smell. Moreover, it was located in a built-up central residential area.

 

So The Cabinet of Ministers decided that the zoo must meet international norms and standards, so there was a need to build it in a new place. The construction started in 1994. A quarter of the territory of the Botanical Garden was allocated for this purpose. In September 1997, the first visitors visited the zoological garden.

 

Currently, its area exceeds 22 hectares. In the spacious landscaped enclosures mammals, birds and reptiles are settled. Its aquarium also has changed and now you can see not only turtles and a variety of fish, but also eels and sharks in it.

 

In autumn 2009 the Zoo prepared a surprise for the visitors. Endangered Malaysian bears came here. Besides it, a lar gibbon pig-tailed monkeys, mandrill, slow loris and binturong were also brought from Malaysia..

 

At the end of 2014 three Far Eastern wolves, lynx and two female Himalayan bears were brought from Khabarovsk.

 

In March 2015, the pavilion of tropical plants beautiful butterflies were settled.
