At the Worldwide Zoo Consultants family, we strive to deliver a world-class experience for our clients, implementing our core values of professionalism, experience, creativity and engagement.

Mission

Our mission is to be the voice of the animals that we work for and always have their best interests at heart. We design, develop, maintain and manage zoos and aquariums that are as natural, spacious and ethically focused as they can possibly be in order to consistently prioritize the animals, whilst also providing a safe place for humans to connect with them. We strive towards building awareness on the importance of ethical animal conservation and animal rights in order to create a better world for everyone.

Vision

Our vision is to develop, design and manage zoos, aquariums and other animal living museums that consistently prioritize the well-being, safety and prosperity of our animals. Emphasizing on this, we would want to become the world’s leading zoo consultancy firm from an ethical, qualitative and sustainable standpoint. We will use innovation, experience and the latest best practices to develop a safe forever-home for our animals in order to connect humans with wildlife.

Corporate Social Responsibility

We want society and the animals to benefit from our existence. Worldwide Zoo Consultants is an active member playing a vital role in animal rescue and rehabilitation. We are also an equal opportunity employer, with a multi-national team of almost 20 nationalities covering all the continents of the world (excluding the poles). Our projects and operations have the potential to benefit local communities by creating jobs, supporting development initiatives and providing opportunities for local suppliers. At Worldwide Zoo Consultants we truly believe in giving back and are always excited by new possibilities to do so.
