      The winter has returned and not only has Berlin firmly in its grip. Ukraine is facing its second war winter, and with it, all Ukrainian zoos. For the employees and animals in Ukrainian zoos, survival has been at stake for almost two years. Since February 2022, we have been in close contact with colleagues on-site and, thanks to your donations and numerous deliveries of relief supplies, have been supporting several Ukrainian zoos, animal welfare, and species conservation projects. You can continue to help – every cent benefits the employees and animals in Ukraine.

      Although our group of white-nosed coatis is already pleased with the enhancement of their climbing opportunities, there are still more enrichment the animals keepers and curators would like to add to the enclosure. Among other things, they would like to buy climbing ropes, food balls and other toys, to allow the four bears to follow their natural instincts and behaviours. The zoo and the coatis are grateful for any support for this cause.

      To further entertain our brown bears, we aim to, among other things, provide them with a large wooden feed drum as well as time-controlled feeders to match the bears' dexterity and intelligence. Additionally, a honey tree to make the enclosure even more exciting and varied, would be the ultimate dream for man and animal alike. Zoo Berlin and its brown bears are grateful for any contributions towards the fulfillment of these wishes.

      Now that the small and large inhabitants of the "Empire of Cats" have settled in well, the animal keepers have identified the first activity preferences of the big cats. While jaguar Aloha prefers to play with robust balls, the Persian leopards Emil and Shiva rather enjoy scratching toys. We would now like to offer the big cats an even bigger variety in the choice of enrichment devices with which they can occupy themselves for hours. It would be nice if we could provide additional toys for the playful cats.

      Although lions are not typically known for spending much time in trees, natural stems and plantings of all kinds are more than mere decorative elements within the lion enclosure at the Zoo Berlin. Our animal keepers are planning an even more lush planting of the savannah landscape with large, shady trees. A sum of 16,800 euros is needed to ensure that these trees are not just temporary enrichment for the animals, but remain as long-lasting, stable features to their home. It would be great if we could make the further planting of the facility possible with your help.

      On an area of around 14,000 m², a new rhino house is being built that will show Indian rhinoceroses, tapirs and Visayan warty pigs in their natural co-housing and brings visitors closer to an entire ecosystem. The reddish tower of the compound’s centre stands as an exotic monument for species conservation. Help us to realise this project together.

      The curators and keepers would like to provide the bears with new wooden climbing structures and more toys to keep the panda family busy. The climbing ropes, balls and other toys, which the other big bears will also enjoy, will provide the animals with even more variety and further increase their dexterity. Zoo Berlin and the panda bears are looking forward to any support in the realisation of this project.

      A pride of lions doze in a sandy hollow on the savannah, tigers skulk in the undergrowth, and leopards perch on lofty branches. We are carrying out extensive renovations to our Predator House. Cages are being replaced with habitats that recall the animals’ homes in the wild, giving visitors a whole new experience of our big cats. We are looking for donations to support this ambitious project.

      Even though bull elephant Victor spends many a warm summer evening outside, stretched out in the outdoor area, he sleeps in the elephant house during the nights. The zookeepers now want to equip the elephants' sleeping quarters with a new floor and a better ventilation system. Zoo Berlin and the elephants appreciate any support for the realisation of this project.

      The small island between the World of Birds and the Hippo House is to be turned into a paradise for bees. We would greatly appreciate any contribution you can make so that we can acquire everything we need for this project, such as boxes, frames and honey extractors.

      Ring-tailed vontsiras and Malagasy narrow-striped mongooses share a common passion: they love to climb. To give them even more options for activity, we are installing vines, climbing nets and ropes so the animals can exercise, demonstrate their dexterity and impress visitors.

      Whether on your own, with a loved one, or in a big group, hanging swings aren’t just great fun for humans – our closest animal relatives love them too! Thanks to your support, we were able to install swinging nets for our apes. They use them to relax, climb, doze, cuddle, or to hang upside down from.

      To entertain our intelligent apes and keep their minds busy, we purchased puzzle feeders that train their dexterity and problem-solving abilities. Inside the feeders are the apes’ favourite treats. It is their task to use a stick as a tool to reach the tasty titbits. Thanks to your donations, we were able to purchase additional puzzle feeders to keep our apes busy and happy.

      The parrots in the World of Birds love their daily showers. Thanks to your generous support, we are able to provide more than 40 of our feathered friends with a refreshing shower twice a day – just like they would get in the South American rainforest!
