The 117th spring-summer season at Kyiv Zoo

The 117th spring-summer season at Kyiv Zoo

🌞🌺🌿 This weekend marks the start of the 117th spring-summer season at Kyiv Zoo. Already almost all the animals have moved to their outdoor enclosures and ponds and the park has turned green and blossomed with the beauty of flowers and trees.

💚 In these difficult times for our country activity of the zoo is possible only with the support of society, state and public institutions, global colleagues and friends and of course dedication of our employees.

☝️ The main thing now is to provide the zoo residents with warmth, feed, veterinary care and to improve their conditions despite all the difficulties. Since the beginning of racist aggression we have given shelter to more than 400 animals and this imposes on us the responsibility for their further fate.

✔️ Before the opening of the season more than 30 exhibits were updated, two artificial ponds were created, 15 modern aeration systems were installed and an enclosure twice as large was built for 12 rescued Anubis baboons. On the occasion of offspring in capybara’s family we have equipped a new “children’s playground” with a pool and much more.

💙💛 Ukraine is a European state! And we must educate European values and standards in all areas of our society and the relationship with nature and the animal world of our country is very important for our future and the future of our children.

That is why we believe in the Armed Forces, unite in the fight against invaders and stick together 🙏

🇺🇦 Glory to Ukraine!
