The past and present

The past and present

Covering an area of 6.5 hectares, the zoological garden was formally opened to the public on 9th May 1946. Josef Fabián was the zoo's first manager and the museum curator at this time, holding these posts from 1946 to 1953. Surprisingly, all the cages and enclosures had to be constructed by zoo personnel, particularly during the first few decades in the zoo's history. Most significantly, an old greenhouse for palm trees was transformed into the Tropical House, housing primates, birds, and Rémus, the first lion at Dvůr Králové.

Birthday party for a 4-year old orangutan baby Indah-Tessa

We will celebrate on 15 November 2014 the fourth birthday party of orang utan baby. Zoo staff will prepare a fruit cake, present and enrichment for birthday female Tessa. She was born on 13th November 2010; her mother ‘s name is Zaneta. She is living in the World of Birds house together with her mother.   The event will be held as a part of Orangutan Caring Week campaign of Orang Utan Republic Foundation in cooperation with numerous associations. The aim of the campaign is to inform general public about destruction of rain forests – natural habitat of both orang utan species – which can lead to their quick extinction.
