The Haifa Educational Zoo is an ideal place for families to visit while in Haifa. Originally built in 1949 by Pinchas Cohen as an education center for a neighboring school. After renovations in 2002 the zoo now hosts more than 100 species of wildlife, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and plantlife. Built on a beautiful nature reserve on Mount Carmel with views of the Mediterranean Sea, the zoo covers 35 dunams (8.6 acres) making it perfect for everyone, especially families with small children.
Besides the animals, the zoo’ grounds contain a botanical garden, a library, the prehistoric museum and a biology institute, and a school that teaches environmental and nature studies. More than 20,000 students come each year from all parts of the country
