About Marion Zoological
In 1985 a collaboration of exceptional researchers, scientists, and exotic animal caretakers recognized a need to develop capabilities in the area of animal nutrition for rare and endangered species. Prior to this effort, scientific studies and documented field testing of the nutritional requirements for these species had been hampered by the following issues: a lack of resources; conflicting scientific directions; inappropriate food manufacturing technologies; economic motivation; and, a lack of access to collections of animals both in the wild and in captivity.
By addressing these areas, Marion Zoological has become a world class provider of foods for approximately two hundred rare and endangered species of animals. Marion Zoological delivers its life-enriching foods worldwide to leading zoological institutions, private and wild animal collections, and the exotic pet industry. This success is based upon the exceptional cooperation of its partners, customers, and suppliers.
