The staff of Kharkiv Zoo congratulates Igor Terekhov on his victory in the elections of the mayor of Kharkiv!  For many years, Ihor Oleksandrovych has been selflessly working on the development of his hometown, paying close attention to all spheres of Kharkiv's life.  Thanks to the professional approach of Igor Alexandrovich, Kharkiv delights and inspires!

One of such objects of admiration, of course, is the updated Kharkiv Zoo.  The first in Ukraine, one of the twenty oldest in the world, and after a large-scale reconstruction - the first European-class zoo in the country and one of the best in Europe!  All stages of the zoo reconstruction took place under the supervision of Ihor Terekhov.  A unique leader, he thoroughly, to the smallest detail, delved into the issues of construction, the peculiarities of the formation of the zoological collection.  Today Kharkiv Zoo is a member of the Ukrainian Association of Zoos and Aquariums.  We hope that soon the zoo will become a full member of the European Association of Zoos and Aquariums, which will open up incredible horizons.

All five years of the difficult reconstruction process Igor Olexandrovych confidently walked towards the goal - the opening of a grandiose zoo.  And this goal has been achieved!  The zoo, which was reconstructed with love for Kharkiv, has become a real gem of the city, a place filled with smiles, laughter and joy of young and adult visitors!
