Zoo-AG English Homepage


Bielefeld Zoo Biology Workgroup!

We are a group of biology students and graduates from the University of Bielefeld, northwestern Germany, but also keepers, architects and multimedia specialists. We meet twice a month to discuss new developments in the zoo world, to give talks about recently visited zoos from all over the world and about conferences, to listen to guest talks and to work on our various projects.

Language still is a problem on the Web. As most of our visitors are from the German area, our site is in German. And it would be much to much effort to translate it all. But, some of the webbased translation engines like Babelfish and Google give quite useful translations: Try this translated version of our Homepage. You then can click on and get more translated pages. If this does not work, copy the URL to the form on the translation engine's website Have fun!
