Visitors returning to the Zoo, dressed for Purim
Unfortunately the Zoo has been closed to visitors during the three lockdowns in Israel in March-May and September-October 2020 and again at the end of 2020 with a third lockdown that started on December 28, 2020.
Overall, there were a total of 119 days of complete closure in the 2020 calendar year.
During the whole of 2020, the Education Department at the Zoo was very limited in its ability to continue with its usual programming.
Happily, the Zoo re-opened on February 21, 2021 with limited entries.
We are now looking forward to a range of holy days and holidays in the coming month in different sectors of Israeli society: such as Rosh Hodesh Nissan, the birthday of the Prophet Mohammed, Passover and towards the middle of April, the holiday of Ramadan,
