Nature Protection

We can, we must, and we are obligated to do everything in our power to protect nature for generations to come!

Zoological gardens have undergone significant changes throughout history. Initially, they were private collections of highly knowledgeable individuals and not accessible to the public. Later, zoological gardens were opened to the public for educational purposes, as there was no other way to learn about biology. In the second half of the twentieth century, zoological gardens became widely popular.

However, each zoo operated according to its own principles until the end of the century when zoos began to collaborate and develop operational standards. As a result, codes of ethics, guidelines for responsibility and reproduction, as well as principles for animal welfare were developed. Today, zoos are being transformed into modern centers for biodiversity conservation, with a focus on protecting endangered species and educating society about nature and biology.

Species are disappearing from the face of our planet, but it's not too late to take action.

The average global population of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians has decreased by 60% in just 40 years.

The term “wilderness” no longer has the same meaning as it did in the recent past. Animal species living in the wild are often endangered. It is estimated that there are only 400 Asiatic lions left in the wilderness of India, only 80 eastern bongos in the forests of Kenya, and dangerously low populations of thousands of other species around the world.

We are the initiators of animal population control - human beings.

The development of the human race and everything that comes with it, from agriculture to mining – to pollution. Animals lose access to natural habitats that previously existed. Tropical forests are being destroyed for palm plantations, oceans are filled with dangerous plastics and carbon dioxide emissions cause irreparable damage to the climate, resulting in the disappearance of animal habitats.

Your visit is important.

When you visit our zoo, you are doing great things by coming. Every visit to our zoo helps fund the restoration of habitats and the protection of wildlife.

Although we do not have the financial strength or workforce to invest in large conservation projects, we make great efforts locally, nationally, and globally and believe we can inspire visitors. Thanks to visitor support, our conservation program has made the Zoo Garden Palic part of a global network and able to participate in projects worldwide.
