Monrovia Children’s Zoo
The zoo will create an environment for discovery and recreation hoping to inspire an appreciation of wildlife.
The zoo will also ensure the highest level of animal welfare, and will support programs that promote biodiversity and conserve natural habitat.
Education will run through every area of the zoo, connecting visitors with messages of conservation through a variety of fun and engaging programs.
In 2003, after 14 years of civil war, a peace agreement was declared. In 2005, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, the first female president of an African country ever, was democratically elected. There is hope for a peaceful future. The reconstruction of the Zoo under the new name “Monrovia Children’s Zoo” – actively encourages this hope by giving Monrovia’s inhabitants new perspectives and by offering traumatized children and young people a recreational community-based facility.
