The Moscow Zoo was founded more than a century and a half ago. From the outset, on the site of today's Zoo were breeding ponds in which all kinds of fish were bred. At the end of the 18th century, near the Presnenskii ponds began to appear the menagerie, which of course was not like the current one, but already at that time pleased the whole population of Moscow with their inhabitants. The organizer of the Moscow Zoo was Tsar Alexander II, who gave the new Zoo an elephant, and allowed everyone to bring animals to the Zoo. During the war with the Nazis the Zoo was evacuated away from danger, but as soon as the threat diminished, the Moscow Zoo immediately returned to its home and began to receive visitors, and there were quite a few, about 6 million, during the war. Starting from 1950 onwards, the Zoo began to cooperate actively with many foreign zoos and diversify their animal population.
