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.
