Avilon Zoo Monkey
The Avilon Montalban Zoological Park is a 7½-hectare zoological and botanical park located in Barangay San Isidro, Rodriguez, Rizal. Owned and operated by Mr. Joaquin Gaw, it started in 1992 as an offshoot of his habit as an exotic animal collector. He decided to show to the public his collection and established the Avilon Zoo. The park, in the 10 years of evolution, became what it is today. Avilon MZP has a collection of nearly 3,000 animals comprising 500 species, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, and even plants, with particular emphasis on Philippine endemic species, a fact that Avilon MZP is proud of.
The park has threefold agenda: conservation, education, and entertainment. Avilon is derived from the Latin words "Aves" meaning birds, and "Lon" meaning earth. In short, Avilon means "Land of Birds".
