He had already opened a zoo in Hamburg. Various park expansions were undertaken in the 1920s and 1930s. After WWII the zoo began to deteriorate. In 1994, the idea was suggested to transfer the zoo into a biopark. As a result, in 1998 the Bioparco S.p.A. was founded. It currently holds 1114 animals of 222 species.
