Zoological Center Tel Aviv-Ramat Gan was opened to the general public in 1974 as an African animal park. In 1981, a zoo was established in the middle of the park to replace the former Tel Aviv Zoo, which had closed down. The zoo covers an area of 100 hectares, and has 1600 animals of about 220 different species including mammals, birds and reptiles of which are highlighted african and asian elephants, hippos, orangutans or lions. Member of  WAZA, Tel Aviv-Ramat Gan Safari participates in several breeding programs and research projects. Their first gorilla, a female called Yehudit, arrived to Tel Aviv in February 1966 from Africa. In August 1997, Anya gave birth to the first baby gorilla, a male that died four days after birth. She gave birth again in July 1998, another male called Alladin, who became the first successfull birth of the zoo. He is living now at a bachelor group in Loro Parque.
