It opened in May 2000, initially as a Bird Park, hosting the 3rd largest bird collection in the world (1.100 birds from 300 different species), farm animals for the younger visitors and 3 very impressive walk-in aviaries – miniatures of the 3 continents – in which visitors can walk and admire the relevant bird fauna and flora. In April 2001, when the “World of Reptiles” was added to the Attica Zoological Park, constant expansions and additions began including the “Greek Fauna” section, with animals rarely seen in Greece (summer 2002), the “African Savannah” with animals from Africa (February 2003), the monkeys and apes section (June 2003), the completion of the “Big Cats” section and the extension of the African Savannah (December 2004), the “Monkey Forest”, where visitors can be in the same enclosure with the monkeys (early 2005), the “Cheetah Land”, where 4 Cheetahs are kept in a large enclosure which visitors can cross through a special corridor, the chimpanzees and gibbons section (March 2008) and finally the “Arid Lands” section hosting animals such as camels, Somali wild asses, etc. (April 2008). In addition, in May 2010, 2 white male rhinos were added to the Park’s “family” and in June 2010, 4 dolphins and 2 California sea lions became members of AZP's family. In the following year, new animal additions include Komodo Dragons, giant Anteaters, common seals, while in December 2015, two beautiful Asian Elephants arrive to our Park. In March 2016, two Persian Leopards arrive at the Park which actively participates in a major breeding and reintroduction program. In 2011, PELARGOS, an independent non-profit civil company was created by Attica Zoological Park, as a vehicle for the protection and conservation of Greek wildlife. A major part of AZP's profits are funding through PELARGOS a number of conservation projects in the wild, together with a number of other important organizations.
