There are about 70 zoos and animal parks in Finland, most of which are rather small animal sanctuaries or farm enterprises. The biggest zoos are located in Helsinki (Korkeasaari Zoo), Ranua (Ranua Zoo), Ähtäri (Ähtäri Zoo), and Lieto (Zoolandia).



The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry has issued a Decision listing the animals that may be used in circuses and similar exhibitions where animals are taught to perform tricks. In Finland it is illegal, for example, to use predatory animals, primates, elephants, ostriches or seals in circuses, while domestic animals such as cats, dogs and horses, are allowed to perform to the public.



So elephants on circus are prohobited in Finland, and the last one in a Zoo, Vanni, left Zolandia (red dot on the map) and Finland in 2005.
