Free Barn Owl Book

The barn owl is an alluring and iconic bird of the Irish country-side. Unfortunately, its numbers have been declining for many years. Dublin Zoo, along with Belfast Zoo and Fota Wildlife Park, are supporting monitoring and conservation work of this  bird which is being carried out by BirdWatch Ireland. To share the findings of this research and to encourage practical conservation measures to help this species, a beautifully illustrated booklet has been produced. This booklet can be downloaded for free here.

Dublin Zoo helps critically endangered waldrapp ibis

The waldrapp ibis is one of the most endangered species in the world. The remaining stronghold for this species is the Souss-Massa National Park in Morocco. To continuing conserving this species, it is essential that the range and movements of this species are better understood. Therefore, Dublin Zoo has sponsored the satellite tagging of a waldrapp ibis in the Souss-Massa National Park. To learn more, please visit the Waldrapp Ibis Conservation page.
