Permanent animal residents….
…there are lots of them! Sometimes the most amazing animal friendships are formed, especially among our permanent residents who will spend the rest of their lives with us because of permanent disabilities.
Unfortunately, we keep getting animals whose condition does not allow them to ever be released back into the wild. We have decided to give these animals as good a life as possible in a species-appropriate way and to use them as ambassadors for their fellow animals in freedom in our education projects. With their help we can achieve a lot with the children and also adults who visit us regularly and create a better awareness for animal and nature conservation.
We try to provide the animals with the best possible accommodation, which means not only a species-appropriate enclosure and food, but also that they are mentally challenged. For this purpose, we have hired a professional animal trainer who ensures that the animals can act out their natural behaviours and also cooperate in their daily care in other ways. The animals visibly enjoy the training and are free to cooperate.
