Some of our projects

The best way to illustrate the work of International Zoo Services is perhaps to present you with a survey of some of the favourite projects that have been completed over the past years. See here below a selection:
Project penguins

A large group of penguins, including King penguins, Rock hopper-penguins, Magelhaen-peguins and Gentoo-penguins were located in South-America and transported to a new zoo in Spain.

Project giraffe

A pair of giraffes was transported from Europe to Brazil, needless to say, a highly complicated project.

Project king cheetahs

A pair of rare King-cheetahs left Africa under our care to their new home in a special breeding-facility in the Middle East.

Project giant tortoises

Giant tortoises are very attractive to the public. A large group of these huge reptiles from a special breeding-centre were delivered to several zoos in Europe and Asia.

Project elephants

Several Asian elephants accompanied by some Mahouts were imported into Germany, coming from different South-East Asian countries.

Project Gang-gang cockatoos

A pair of Gang-gang cockatoos were located, a highly desired and subsequently rarely offered species.

Project male bongo

One of our first projects took place during the eighties when Eastern and Western Europe were still separated. We managed the transfer of a male Bongo from Czechoslovakia to a zoo in West Germany where it participated in a very successful breeding program.

Project clouded leopards

A pair of clouded leopards was sent from a private breeding-center in the U.S.A to a zoo in Tokyo.

Project manatees

We located a pair of Manatees, of a governmental authority in South-America, which was willing to offer them on permanent loan to a zoo in Spain; they were transported by using a chartered plane.

Project rhinoceros

We located a zoo in the Netherlands that was willing to donate a male Indian rhinoceros to a zoo in South-East Asia to complete a pair. International Zoo Services provided the crate and arranged for its transport.

Project white lions

White lions are rarely seen in zoos. We relocated a white lion from a private collection in Africa to a governmental zoo in the U.S.A.

Project zafari

Another large transport took place in the 90's when a group of 65 animals were transferred from several different zoos in Europe to a Night-safari in Southeast Asia.

Project orangutan

In 2017 a new home was found for an adult Orangutan in China. Transport from Spain was successful and with minimum stress for the animal.

Project otters

Nice groups of small-clawed otter from Europe were relocated to excellent destinations in China and U.S.A. during 2018.

Project white tigers

A couple of White tigers from has found their new home in a big zoo in Thailand.

Project fur seals

Groups of fur seals from South-America have been shipped zoos and aquariums in China, Indonesia, Bahrain, Egypt and many other countries.
