We cleaned animals’ homes in ParaZOO

25. - 27.10.2019

On the last weekend of October, the very last weekend event of the year 2019 happened. Thanks to sunny weather, warm welcome of locals and presence of animals we really enjoyed this event. In a small group of 6 volunteers, we visited Vlašim on Friday and stayed in the local ParaZOO, which provides a home for handicapped animals from the local rescue station.

Together, we’ve done 54 hours of volunteer work over the weekend. On Saturday we were mainly cleaning aviaries for birds, carrying sand, raking and carrying leaves and we managed to do it thanks to the help of ParaZOO employees. We enjoyed the late evening around campfire all together. On Sunday we rake up the remaining leaves, cut the ferns, cleaned homes for otters and storks and helped prepare the local „Hmyzák“ event. We put prices on the products for the benefit collection, helped with the production of badges, prepared tents and tables for refreshments. After lunch we visited the local park, enjoyed coffee at the train station and arrived together to Prague.

We would like to thank all participants for their energy and good mood. We’re looking forward to meeting you again!
