About Us

Zoo Ostrava can be counted among the world’s most prominent zoos, both in terms of the breeding of threatened species ex situ as well as of the nature conservation in situ. The zoo has had many considerable achievements in breeding rare and hard-to-breed species as well as keeping the world’s/Europe’s largest breeding groups of other species. However, it has been actively involved in several repatriation projects, having donated more than 600 young for release so far, and it also puts great emphasis on supporting in-situ conservation projects worldwide. Therefore, Zoo Ostrava has implemented the “2 CZK for Wildlife” project, contributing 2 CZK of each admission fee to these conservation projects. Since 2016 when this scheme was launched, 17 in-situ projects were supported by the total amount of 2.5 million CZK. The zoo also employs several in-situ workers and manages a conservation department, one of the few in Central Europe.
