EU Zoo Inquiry 2011: Publications

The EU Zoo Inquiry is a series of reports published in 2011, based on assessments of 200 zoological collections in 20 EU Member States, carried out as part of an evaluation of the level of implementation and enforcement of European Council Directive 1999/22/EC.

The project, conducted over two years, included an evaluation of national laws pertaining to zoos in each Member State compared to the requirements of the Directive, an analysis of the implementation and enforcement of those laws, and an assessment of the status and performance of randomly-selected zoos in each country.
