The zoo’s integration of the four policies is the arrangement of the zoo to become a recreational area with a base of knowledge and understanding that the conservation of wild life and the environment is paramount. Khao Kheow Open Zoo has been supported by the government and the media since its foundation. Before, the area was used to release the excess animals from Dusit zoo back into the environment. We have been successfully developing the zoo for 25 years so that everyone can enjoy and support it in the future.
The relationship between man and animal has been going on for a long time, there is evidence from the past that this is for more than 4,000 years. Since then man has discovered how useful animals are and even took wild animals for use in wars. Animals are symbols of belief in religions and are used for work or show especially in Asian countries such as India and China. Over time the ways of life of society have been changing all the time, with zoos changing from small stalls or travelling circus’ to large, fixed locations, using more space and materials, leading to the refinement and improvement of the complex management systems.
During our 25 years of operation at Khao Kheow Open Zoo we have purposely distributed, publicized and presented a new image of the social service provided by Thai zoos, raising the standard to make us a top class zoo in the world, developing alongside current society.
