El Zoologico de Lujan abrio sus puertas un 24 de noviembre de 1994, en un principio la coleccion inicial de ejemplares de la fauna silvestre y domestica estaba integrada por un mono, dos burros, dos pony, llamas y ciervos, una pareja de leones y pavos reales. Luego, se comenzo a recibir muchas especies provenientes de donaciones, canjes con otras especies y compras a criaderos de fauna, en especial aves, mirlos y guacamayos. El predio ubicado en el historico partido que le da su nombre, sobre el acceso oeste ocupa una superficie de 15 hectareas conformando un amplio espacio natural con una particular fisonomia determinada por los sectores arbolados que lo caracterizan y donde el publico encuentra un lugar para disfrutar de la naturaleza, contemplar e interactuar con algunas especies de animales y vivir momentos de convivencia familiar en ese entorno. Se trata de un zoologico donde los animales conviven con los humanos desde su nacimiento y todo el transcurso de su vida, lo que se logra mediante un dedicado proceso de amansamiento que fue lo que caracterizo a este zoologico desde su fundacion. Rememorar los tiempos pasados y el vivir el presente, nos llevan a mencionar historias de amor a los animales, historias de trabajo en equipo, un enorme entusiasmo por hacer las cosas de modo diferente y el de colocar al parque entre uno de los mejores zoologicos de la Argentina. Adoptando los cuatro principios u objetivos que rigen la actividad de los zoologicos modernos -recreacion, educacion para la conservacion, investigacion y conservacion de las especies- tiende a convertirse en un centro de conservacion de grandes felinos amenazados no solo de America sino del mundo entero y donde la gran cantidad de pumas, tigres y leones que forman parte del plantel zoologico, producto de los planes de reproduccion que se llevan a cabo en la institucion, aseguran la existencia de un banco genetico de especimenes que en algun momento de la historia de estos grandes felinos, podra ser un reservorio que asegure la supervivencia de estas especies en peligro de extincion. A 19 anos de existencia, el Zoologico de Lujan no solo se ha convertido en un lugar de alto atractivo para los visitantes provenientes de toda la Argentina, sino que ha trascendido fronteras al ser reconocido internacionalmente con visitantes provenientes no solo de los paises limitrofes sino de otros continentes que lo visitan atraidos por la modalidad de manejo que se practica con nuestros ejemplares.

Animals are kept in cramped, small cages. People were petting and sitting on animals backs such as lions and tigers?! I don't like to see animals being used in this way for entertainment. As a genuine animal lover, I will never visit anywhere like this...More

An impressive collection of cats all of them in tiny cages, under medication, a very sad spectacle, I can not believe in 2016 there is a "famous" zoo in this condition. Some animals are fed with leftovers from restaurants, food not meant for them ......More

I decided not to go into the zoo. Read my review. There's other things to do which are cruelty-free.
