A call to donate toys to Zoo animals
2021.10.12.

Riga Zoo will celebrate its 109th Anniversary on 14 October. There were several Zoo animals that gave the joy to Zoo visitors the most. Among them were Augusts the Amur Tiger, Teika and Varis the African Lion cubs,  Demija and Rems the Nothern Lynx kittens, and Vakilija the new Baringo Giraffe. This year visitors were able to watch them playing. Now the animals deserve to receive some more toys!

Some used leather ball from a dedicated Zoo friend can make a really valuable present for Zoo animals.

■ Augusts would be really happy for a big (at least 150 litre) empty plastic barrel or an old, used buoy to play with.
■ Young Lions and Lynxes are waiting for some new leather balls, either football or volleyball, either new or used, as any of them make excellent toys.
■ Vakilija would be happy to have some big fitness ball (but not yellow or red), to play a giraffe-ball.

If you'd like to donate balls to Zoo animals, please bring them to the Zoo ticket offices this October. If you'd like to donate a barrel or a buoy for Augusts, please call us (67518669, in working hours).

The behavioral enrichment for Zoo animals is an essential part of a Zoo's everyday life. Zoo keepers often provide animals with puzzles to solve, hiding the food in boxes or other objects, etc. So animals have to look for their food actively. We also present toys to our animals – boxes, balls and various other toys. Zoo animals like it!
