Happy 130th Birthday Adelaide Zoo! Featured
One hundred and thirty years ago today, Thursday 23 May, Adelaide Zoo opened its gates to the public for the first time. Since its humble beginnings in 1883 as the South Australian Zoological and Acclimatisation Society the zoo has gone on to become a leader in animal welfare and the preservation of all creatures, great and small.
