Environmental enrichment - the various actions and means that are used in order to diversify the daily routine of zoo animals – has become an inseparable part of the Zoological Garden’s daily life.

About three months ago, as part of our collaboration with the Wildlife Hospital at the Safari Park in Ramat Gan, we received two injured spur-winged lapwings for rehabilitation.

Some of the Garden's newest tenants are youngsters that were hatched or born here.

Measuring the reptiles
  • During the last week of September, the Israel Nature and Parks Authority holds a snake-catcher course at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo. All the snakes used for demonstration and teaching in the course are usually snakes from our reptile collection.

Throughout the Garden we are continuing the renovation works that are being carried out both for the welfare of animals and for the welfare of our visitors.
