The 12th year of the National Wolf Awareness Week at the Olomouc Zoo is sucessfully behind us. Our rich and attractive exhibition drawn the attention of many pass-by visitors, some of them also contributed to local Hudson Bay wolf breeding. The total amount of contributions is CZK 690. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you again next year.
The National Shark Awareness Week event held at the Svatý Kopeček Zoo near Olomouc is over. We were available at our stand throughout the zoo's opening hours entire weekend. Indeed, many visitors visited our stand, especially on Saturday.
We faced an unprecedented interest from children and their parents. Everything took place in a very friendly and pleasant atmosphere. We had long and interesting conversations with many visitors. We also learned many interesting pieces of information ourselves, such as about the encounter with the hammerhead shark and dugong at the Sataya dolphin reef in the Red Sea, or about the fossilized prehistoric reefs on the coast of the Adriatic Sea in Croatia. The summer vacation season is approaching, so we explained to visitors heading to their favorite resorts, among other things, how important is for marine ecosystems even the seemingly abandoned seashell on the beach. We consider the National Shark Awareness Week 2023 to be very successful. We collected a total of 1641 CZK and 0.1 EUR in the donation box for small gifts. This amount, rounded to $90 has been transferred to the PADI project (Shark & Ray Census).
The National Wolf Week in the Olomouc Zoo took place from 1st to 2nd October 2022. Despite the relatively cold and volatile autumn weather, we were very satisfied with the attendance at our stand. A total of CZK 1,198 was collected from generous donors to support the local captive-breeding of Hudson Bay wolves. We would like to thank not only all those interested in our stand, but also the Zoo Olomouc for letting us present our NGO in their premises.
