Fall Report 2020

Group visiting the Zoo
Group visiting the Zoo

As in many places around the world, the Jerusalem Zoo and the Israel Aquarium have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

For the first time in the Zoo's history, we were required to close our gates to visitors for some 50 days during the first lockdown in Israel in mid-March.

As a result, the 2019-2010 school year was a very challenging and extraordinary year.

We started the year as usual with a similar number of groups as in the previous year but all our activities were postponed immediately with the closing of the education system in Israel.

Overall 7,868 children in groups from the Arab-speaking population visited the Zoo in this past year.

This is unfortunately 60% less than last year's numbers.

On a positive note, this year we managed to hold some important continuing education and team-building activities for the Arabic-speaking guiding team. These included a visit to the Steinhardt Museum of Natural History in Tel Aviv and special training sessions learning about each animal group.

Keep healthy, 

Rachael and the Education Team
