Discover Nordens Ark
Nordens Ark is a private non-profit foundation that works to ensure endangered animals have a future. We are engaged in breeding, rearing, research and training, as well as doing what we can to increase public awareness of biological diversity. Much of our work is done in the field, both in Sweden and overseas.
We strive to strengthen populations of at-risk species by releasing individuals into the wild, and by improving the habitats in which they live. In Sweden, Nordens Ark has national responsibility for breeding and releasing, among others, the peregrine falcon, white-backed woodpecker, lesser white-fronted goose, green toad and several beetle species.
The zoological park is open every day of the year from 10am. Closing time varies with the season. By visiting us, you are supporting our work to save endangered animals.
