International organizations and private individuals!
Ukraine is on fire. The whole world is supporting our military forces and civilians in this war.
Thank you for #standwithukraine !
We are kindly asking you to support Ukrainian wild nature as a part of world natural heritage.
Many wild animals in Ukrainian ZOOs and Nature reserves are starving from hunger, they need feed. Others should be immediately transported to safe regions or treated from injures, made by the war.
We are blessing you to give any kind of support you can: donate money, provide shelter for animals, spread the information!
Every ZOO, nature reserve, every animal park in Ukraine is unique. They are a huge source of natural protective and educational work. Often, they are the only possibility for local children and citizens to explore wild nature!
Here are the links to the organizations, operating in the area in the most affected regions in Ukraine.
