During the Spring break we welcomed over 71,000 visitors to the Biblical Zoo in Jerusalem! Visitors from all over Israel, and from all communities - Jewish, Muslim, Christian, Druze and others; secular and religious; young and old came to enjoy the blossoming gardens and the special educational activities on offer.
The special educational activities included:
Of-course, our regular education programs also continue to run - after school programs, school field trips, animal assisted therapy, the Zoo Teen Patrol Youth Volunteers, the zoology high school graduation program, workshops and seminars.
Thank you for joining us in these efforts at raising awareness of wildlife conservation and environmental issues with visitors of all ages and backgrounds; while at the same time providing a neutral meeting place for people of different faiths, nationalities, and political views.
As always, it is our privilege to receive our diverse community and to educate visitors in a beautiful and peaceful green space in the heart of Jerusalem. We are now preparing our summer education program - look out for another update soon!
