The critical number of employees (about 50 people) is constantly on site, even at night. The zoo is closed to visitors, but the care of the animals does not stop.
The war is causing terrible stress for the animals, so some of them have been moved to indoor enclosures and underground galleries. Veterinarians monitor their emotional state and, if necessary, provide a sedative.
During the night battle (video of the night and morning zoo in the comments) there were no direct hits on the territory of the zoo, the staff were in prepared bomb shelters.
Every day we receive messages with words of support, very grateful to everyone! Kyiv Zoo is provided with energy, water, heat and food (approximately 10 days in advance). So at the moment there is no need for additional help.
Especially in the coming days, it is the support of our defenders.
Take care of yourself and Ukraine!
CEO of Kyiv Zoo
