During World War II, Dutch and American marines and soldiers used the area to do vehicle maintenance. There was always abundance of water in the area that’s why around the 1940’s trees and plants were cultivated and the park was known as "Plantentuin" (botanical garden). In the fifties in addition to the trees and plants, animals from different privately owned collections were exhibited. The area became a very popular site. The exotic/tropical animals became an attraction for the young and old. After years the area changed from botanical garden to a zoo. The government in 2000 installed a foundation with the sole function to manage the zoo. The foundation is called Fundashon Parke Tropikal Starting in 2011 a new and dynamic team of young professionals took the foundation to a new era. The New name is CURACAO ZOO & NATURE RESERVE.This new team set their goals and mission for the coming ten years to make of our national zoo a great area with international standards, this all cannot be completed only on the government funding, that’s why they are giving every person that visits the zoo the chance to adopt an animal or even an entire project .Upon request they can give you a great tour. For nearly sixty years only four acres where used, but in fact the zoo has more than nineteen acres to be converted in to a great attraction, a former dam that has become a nature reserve is also part of this giant plan with more than sixty acres to add to the final plan. « less
