Description:
The Tel Aviv Zoo was a zoo founded in 1938 and located in central Tel Aviv, Israel. The zoo was closed in 1981 and now the Gan Ha'Ir shopping mall occupies this site.

History



When Rabbi Dr. Mordecai Schornstein arrived in Tel Aviv from Copenhagen in 1935, he had purchased some animals in Italy, and atarted a pet shop on Shenkin Street 15 which he named ‘Gan Hayot’ (‘zoo’ in Hebrew). In 1938 he started the zoo on Hayarkon Street 65. Once some lions and tigers were donated to the zoo it caused too much disruption in the neighborhood, and was moved to its location behind city hall in 1939.

In the late 1960s and the 1970s the zoo was one of the few zoos in the world to successfully breed flamingos.

In 1981, the animals were moved out of the city to the Zoological Center of Tel Aviv-Ramat Gan. The Gan Ha'Ir shopping mall now occupies the site of the former zoo.
