Like every company, Hellabrunn Zoo conducts an annual stocktake at the end of each year. Although this may sound relatively straightforward, the process is actually quite complicated. Especially as some animals were more cooperative than others.
While the four meerkats at the zoo were counted and weighed relatively quickly, recording the number of Fischer's lovebirds as fly around their aviary at will proved more challenging. Not to mention the tiny neon tetra fish that all look the same! So how can the zoo keep track of all its residents?
The Munich Zoo Hellabrunn was founded in 1911 as the first Geo-zoo worldwide. The animals live according to their geographic distribution in complex communities.
Hellabrunn’s Species Conservation Center is a unique forum where zoo visitors can access an amazing amount of information about the zoo’s many projects.
