Research and Investigation


Lagos Zoo collaborates with many institutions and Universities in scientific research projects.


Any modern Zoo has an active role in the conservation of nature, either through “ex situ“ programmes or “in situ” programmes.

Lagos Zoo participates in several EEP’s (captive breeding Programs for endangered species) through the EAZA (European Association of Zoos and aquariums) and also in awareness-raising of the visitors, particularly environmental campaigns, exhibitions, etc.

Lagos Zoo participates in conservation projects, in collaboration with several NGOS.
