24th week

On the coming Sunday, June 18, the zoo invites everyone to see how the zoo animals play: another environmental enrichment day takes place at the zoo. Starting at 10 o’clock in the morning, the animals will be given new and exciting toys, many of which were made with the help of visitors on the Night of Museums. The programme of the day is available here.
