The South American Sea Lions have already moved into their new pool where they are not visible for visitors at the Moment. The daily Sea Lion trainings are taking place in the "Seal Kindergarten" in the Polar World.
Spring is slowly taking hold at Hellabrunn, and with it begins the baby boom at the zoo. The rare Girgentana goats, for example, have already produced four kids this year.
The four recently born kids - Rose, Romina, Ronja and Räuber - are quite active and keep the adult Girgentana in the group at Hellabrunn on their toes. Born between February and April, all four baby goats are half-siblings: they all share the same dad, Mr Montgomery. Girgentana goats are known for their characteristic corkscrew-shaped horns, which can reach up to 80 cm in length in males.
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.
