National Shark Awareness Week 2024

The eleventh National Shark Awareness Week, held for you at the Olomouc Zoo, is already over. Even though both weekend days were accompanied by frequent and sometimes very heavy rain showers, they did not dampen the curiosity and interest of the (mainly) children's visitors in our rich exhibition in any way. The total sum of small donations CZK 1300 was transferred to the Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme. The Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme (MWSRP) is a research-based conservation charity dedicated to studying the whale shark and fostering community-focused conservation initiatives in the Maldives and the greater Indian Ocean.
