World’s first scientific zoo was opened in Regent's Park, hence often called Regent's Zoo. Initially, it was just for the members of the Zoological Society of London, founded two years earlier. In 1847, it was opened to the public. Today it houses a collection of 698 species of animals, with 20 166 individuals.
