About us – A worldwide network

International Zoo Services is a consultancy group for zoological collections worldwide, specialized in the relocation of animals. It was founded in 1985 by John Rens, former deputy-director of Wassenaar Zoo, The Netherlands. This zoo was famous for their breeding results with bonobos, gorillas, cheetahs, and birds of prey.

Our organization is supplying and transporting animals to zoos worldwide; we do not have animals in stock but our team is maintaining a databank of all surplus and wanted species of thousands of zoos and recognized private breeding-farms. This worldwide network can assist you to locate your wanted species and to find new homes for your surplus-specimens.
