Kyiv Zoo together with Chernobyl Radiation-Ecological Biosphere Reserve continue conducting wildlife research in the Exclusion Zone. In order to collect genetic samples, scientists install photo traps and special wool catchers. Scientific work is a necessary part of zoos’ activity that meet EAZA standards.
