Hellabrunn Zoo, in cooperation with the Stadtsparkasse Munich bank, has set up an endowment fund for the specific purpose of securing the zoo for future generations. On 6 October, Ralf Fleischer, chairman of the board of Stadtsparkasse Munich, presented the certificate to Hellabrunn's zoo director Rasem Baban.
The Hellabrunn Zoo Endowment Fund was launched to support the maintenance and modernisation of the facilities at the zoo. The endowment fund will be managed by the Stadtsparkasse Munich bank, where it is bundled together with other foundation funds under the bank's "Together Doing Good" initiative.
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.
