Since mid-October, the Jungle World at Hellabrunn Zoo has been graced with the presence of two female Bali mynas flying around the enclosure. These beautiful, but critically endangered birds are the flagship species of the new EAZA Silent Forest campaign, which is supported by Hellabrunn as a participating zoo.
A walk through peaceful forests is for many a welcome change from everyday life. However, silence in the forest is not always desired: in Southeast Asia, for example, people would prefer less silence and more singing. Particularly as more and more songbirds are disappearing from the tropical forests of the region.
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.
