Hsinchu Zoo is located in Hsinchu City's East District, on Boai Street, No.111. Established in 1936, it's currently the oldest existing zoo in Taiwan. During the Japanese occupation era, it served as a children's playground. The zoo area was included as an extension to the park, before it later expanded to become Hsinchu Zoo. In 2002, it became sister zoos with the Taipei Zoo. The four main objectives of the zoo are: conservation, education, research, and recreation. It's divided into a cute area, monkey family, bird paradise, tropical rain forest, and reptile kingdom, and contains a wide range of animals. Conserved animal species include the chinchilla, Asian water buffalo, European rabbit, miniature horse, and more. The monkey family includes other conserved animals such as the Formosan rock macaque, lemurs, and gibbons. The bird paradise contains the green peafowl, indian peafowl, and other rare birds. The rain forest area is home to endangered animal species like the Malaysian sun bear, orangutan, and Bengal tiger. Turtles, crocodiles, and alligators are found in the reptile kingdom. There's also a deer paradise, with sika deer and Reeve's Muntjac.
