National Shark Awareness Week 2020

wod logoDespite the declared Covid-19 pandemic and the associated uncertainty about the possibility of holding our National Shark Week 2020, we have finally made it happen. The attendance at our stand, especially on Saturday June 6th, has far exceeded our expectations. The stream of both adult and young visitors of our stand was literally endless throughout the opening hours. Mainly because of the recent loosening of the government's measures against the spread of the above-mentioned disease, but main role played also the new part of our exposition from the West African coast, called Senegal Echoes. The success of the event is also underlined by the record-breaking amount of the donations, a total of 1902 CZK. This amount, rounded to 71.50GBP (including tip), was sent to the Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme (MWSRP) charity.

National Wolf Awareness Week 2019

Despite of rainy Saturday we decided not to postpone our National Wolf Week in the Olomouc Zoo, so it took place in originally announced weekend, from 5th to 6th October 2019. As a result of this decision, the attendance at our booth on Saturday was quite low. Nevertheless, we've collected a total of 808 CZK for Hudson Bay wolves in the Olomouc Zoo, which is not so bad considering the weather. Many thanks to all donors on behalf of wolves and the Olomouc Zoo.
