Spring cares

Finally spring came to Krasnodar! Not the calendar one, but the true one! Not only people are glad the incoming of spring, but also the animals, residents of “Safari-Park”.

Spring awakening is in full spate! Animals from the quarantine zone began to return, little by little the nurslings are redeployed in the summer enclosures.

Spring is a responsible period in activity of the zoo. Every day counts. The reconstruction of the excibition areas, cleaning of grounds and ponds are running at full tilt, park sculptures, paths, bridges and flower-beds are put into shape, the swimming pools of the thalassophilus and room of the “Pinnipeds Theatre” are repaired.

This year a new material will be used for finishing of the enclosures and expositional decorations – concrete with the special composition which reduces water capacity and increases strength of the constructions.

Birth of the babies, appearance of new life is a consistent and fine final of the spring wakening of nature. Just recently a blessed event had happened in the zoo: a Romanov sheep by the nickname Marusya gave birth to twins. One of the babies she refused to feed. The employees of the zoo charged themself with him: after milking of the sheep they fed the newborn.

Then the mother with children were placed in the special crib. For the incomplete month already 9 lambs of this breed were born.

By the way since the 17. of March the zoo moved to the spring mode of work and will close one hour later in 19 o’clock.
