Prolonged weekend in a ZOO, that helps

25. - 28.10.2019

The very last weekend of the autumn season will be quite specific, a bit different, but mainly – prolonged! At the end of October we will go to the place full of different animals, which were rescued and treated in the rescue station ČSOP Vlašim, but due to the permanent consequences of their injuries can no longer be released back into the wild. And so they live here, in the local ParaZOO.

Anyone can visit ParaZOO and not only learn about animals, but also about the causes of their threats due to human activity and, above all, learn about the prevention of animal injury.


This weekend event will be divided into two working parts. During Saturday and Sunday we will work manually in the ParaZOO in the garden itself, help with planting plants, clean up the aviaries and gardens, cut the grass and do some landscaping. On Monday we will be helping at the local event about insect “Hmyzák”, which will take place in the ParaZOO. The event is intended for families with children, it will have both educational and entertaining character. We will assist visitors as well as the organizers. In the afternoon after the event we will depart back to Prague.

We count on your participation throughout the whole event. If you could not participate until Monday, please let us know as soon as possible (Monday 28 October is a public holiday).
