Mogo Zoo is a privately owned zoo situated 10km south of Batemans Bay in the picturesque and historic goldmining village of Mogo. Mogo Zoo is the only zoological park in Australia dedicated to the conservation of exotic animals outside the public statutory zoos. The zoo is committed to the survival of endangered species and it is this collection of species threatened with extinction which forms the core of the Zoo's focus.
The collection displays a widely acclaimed range of species including: Nepalese Red Panda (there are only twenty in Australia); Koalas; Water Buffalo; Golden Lion Tamarin (one of the most endangered mammals on Earth); Cotton Top Tamarin; Otters; Ring-tailed Lemurs; Reticulated Python; de Brazza Monkeys; Jaguars; Snow Leopards; Pygmy Marmoset; Lar (white handed) Gibbons; African Lions; Sumatran and Bengal Tigers; Syrian Brown Bears, Meerkats and others. Mogo Zoo is known internationally for its conservation work regarding the endangered Red Panda by providing modest annual financial support to 'Resources Nepal' and also supports four zoos in Indonesia (three of these housing Sumatran Tigers).
