Over the past five years, the performance of the Zoological and Botanical Gardens industry has been influenced by increasing attendance and declining government funding for environmental heritage. Increasing domestic and international tourism and higher discretionary incomes have supported industry expansion, while a greater range of recreational activities outside the industry has intensified competition for zoos, aquariums and botanical gardens. New attractions at industry facilities, like the birth of an Asian elephant at Melbourne Zoo, have led to a greater percentage of the population visiting zoos and botanical gardens.
This industry includes the operation of zoos, aquariums and botanical gardens.
