International Vulture Awareness Day Saturday 5/9

"Vultures - Without them, Earth would get pretty stinky!"

Vultures are large birds of prey that usually feed on carrion or dead animals. Having strong stomach and good immune system they don't get sick from eating rotten meat.   Of the 23 species of vultures that exist, over half of them are Threatened as a result of human impact.  Greece is comprised of habitats important for vultures.  On Saturday we will meet them up close and learn more about them.

Hornbill Day - Sunday 13 Sept 2020

"Hornbills - colorful warriors of the forest"

These unique and rare birds that have a majestic bill, live in the tropical rainforest and play an important role in tropical ecology by spreading the seeds of trees.  Many species of hornbills are seriously threatened with extinction and the only way to save them is through breeding and re-introduction to the wild via programs in wildlife rescue centers and zoological parks.  Meet them up close and find out how our Park is contributing to their conservation on Sunday 13 September.

World Rhino Day Sunday 20nd Sept 

"My horn belongs on my head!"

The characteristic horn on the nose of these shy giants is the main reason they are endangered in the wild. Their horns are in large demand, especially in SE Asia where it is mistakenly believed that rhino horn powder can cure cancer.  Thus people pay huge sums of money to the poachers. Of course, the truth is that rhino horn is made of keratin, the same material that our hair and nails are composed of. So please shout out "Their horn belongs on their head!" and visit us on Sunday 20th September to meet them up close! 

 

ACTIVITIES

12.30-15.00  arts & crafts and info chats about rhinos outside the zoo cafe
