Celebrating Life at Avilon Zoo in Rodriguez, Rizal

About Avilon Zoo

Currently the largest zoological institution in the Philippines in terms of live animals groups, this 7.5 hectare facility is located in Rodriguez, Rizal and houses more than 3,000 specimens of exotic wildlife representing more than 500 species of birds, mammals reptiles, amphibians, freshwater fishes and invertebrates. The zoo has a diverse collection of Philippine native and endemic fauna, most of which have been bred successfully in captivity through AVILON's ex situ conservation programs.
