The zoo's conservation activities include:

The zoo offers a wonderful opportunity to observe animals in conditions close to their natural habitats, learn more about animals and birds, their behavior, and the importance of their protection.

Today our zoo is a favorite place of recreation for local residents.

Dear visitors, please remember that animals perceive the area of the zoo and their habitats (enclosures) as their personal territory. In this regard, any attempts to get inside the enclosures (even with an outstretched hand or a finger in order to pet or feed the animal), the pets you bring with you may cause the zoo animals to show anxiety and aggression aimed at protecting their territory.
