It is for the first time that such a facility has been created, maximally corresponding to husbandry demands of these gorgeus cats. Moufflons and Siberian Ibexes will also celebrate their housewarming party on Zoo B-Day.

Practical Science Conference "Zoo as a Model of Harmony Between Person and Nature" will takу place 5 September at 14.00 in Zooclub.

Many Zoo colleagues will be invited with the aim of assistance to research cooperation among Zoo specialists. 


Colleagues from various Zoos of Ukraine and other countries as well as EARAZA members will participate in the Conference.

The Conference topic is not casual. During last decades human attitude to animal keeping has radically changed. Animal menageries and "live museums" with miserable and suffering animals have turned into true oases of wild nature with spacious enclosures corresponding to their inhabitants' requirements. Modern Zoos are led by idea of creation of the best conditions that correspond to biological and psychological demands of animals.

6 September will be Excursion day for the Conference guests.
