A new species has arrived at Hellabrunn Zoo! Since the end of last week, four raccoons have moved into the former puma enclosure and made it their own. The new arrivals will not only offer visitors an opportunity to make new friends, but also to learn more about invasive species and neozoa.
The new residents are called Michel, Lars, Ida and Anna. The four raccoons arrived at Hellabrunn Zoo from the Munich Reptile Reception Station last Thursday. As the name suggests, the animals were only temporarily housed in the Munich Reptile Reception Station.
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.
