      The winter has returned and not only has Berlin firmly in its grip. Ukraine is facing its second war winter, and with it, all Ukrainian zoos. For the employees and animals in Ukrainian zoos, survival has been at stake for almost two years. Since February 2022, we have been in close contact with colleagues on-site and, thanks to your donations and numerous deliveries of relief supplies, have been supporting several Ukrainian zoos, animal welfare, and species conservation projects. You can continue to help – every cent benefits the employees and animals in Ukraine.

      For 40 years dholes have been living at Tierpark Berlin. Now, these critically endangered, bright red wild dogs are set to live in an even bigger space by gaining access on to an additional enclosure by autumn 2024. Before they can move, this enclosure - previously home to wolves - has to be updated and adapted to the needs of the dholes. To allow the creation of a new home as close to nature as possible, our colleagues and us would be very happy for any support.

      For 65 years, secretary birds have been living at Tierpark Berlin. The indoor enclosure of these graceful savannah dwellers is therefore fairly outdated and is to be thoroughly modernised. In addition to an expansion of the current living space for these elegant animals, our curators and animal keepers would like to see new energy-saving LED lighting as well as more naturalistic wall designs and furnishing for the animals. It would be great if we could provide these extraordinary birds of prey with a home that further meets their needs. Thank you in advance for your support!

      The enclosure of the spectacled bears is getting a little long in the tooth and will be renovated in the near future. In order to provide Hans and Julia with more options to exercise their natural behaviour even before the planned renovation, our curators and keepers would like to supply a whole potpourri of enrichment devices for the bears. Large wooden food drums, food balls, climbing facilities and hammocks are planned, which will not only train the animals' dexterity but also keep them mentally fit. Tierpark Berlin and the spectacled bears are happy about any support for the purchase and construction of these utensils.

      Attentive observers may have noticed the collapsed climbing structures in the Tierpark Berlin. That's why our animal keepers would like to see the Vari Island in front of the Vari Forest repaired and extended. The two small islands are to be connected to form one island and filled up. In addition, a new and more natural, higher structure made of deadwood logs is to be built and the island is to be planted more densely. The elaborate upgrade will cost 14,700 euros. Tierpark Berlin and the ruffed Varis are happy about any support in the implementation of this project.

      The European hamster is on the verge of extinction: due to the intensification of agriculture and increasing building development, the habitats for these cute rodents are dwindling. In addition to suitable areas for reintroduction, one thing is needed first: the animals themselves. Zoos play a crucial role here in stopping the dramatic downward trend of the European hamster population. The team at Tierpark Berlin therefore has a very big wish: when hamsters awaken from their hibernation in spring, they will already have their own conservation breeding station waiting for them. We need 16,000 euros for this - your help counts!

      The Tierpark’s team of veterinarians are in need of a new ultrasound scanner to help them carry out even better and more intensive check-ups on the animals in their care. Tierpark Berlin and all its animal residents would be grateful for any contribution towards the cost of this equipment.

      Hertha must surely be the most playful bear in Berlin. However, the antics of Hertha and her mother Tonja take their toll on the polar bears’ play equipment, which is swapped out daily to provide behavioural enrichment. Particularly their favourite playthings – the big “ice floes” – are showing a good deal of wear and tear. We want to make sure the bears can continue to enjoy their water playtime to the fullest by repairing their much-loved ice floes.

      At the tierpark, our curators and animal keepers would like to see a new and even larger climbing course for the North American porcupines, which would offer the unhurried rodents even more exercise and variety. Tierpark Berlin and the animals would appreciate any support in making this a reality.

      Our little tree kangaroos love jumping from tree to tree and nibbling on leaves, grains and fruit. In the winter, these nimble climbers retreat to the warmth of the indoor rainforest house. So that visitors can still marvel at their abilities during the colder months, we want to build a varied climbing landscape in their indoor habitat.
