An environmental enrichment project is currently being carried out in the Zoological Garden. The goal is to enable the animals to perform their various natural behaviours and thus improve their welfare.

In the framework of renovation of the eastern trail we decided to incorporate within the trail several animal footprint tracks that tell a story, enabling the visitors to learn about the animals from a different perspective.

In mid-February we received a pair of rock hyraxes from Dr Lee Koren of Bar Ilan University. The male hyrax, Dudu, was captured about three years ago as an adult in Arad, and is now about 7-8 years old. The female, Sky, is about three years old.

On Friday, 12th February 2016, Nature Campus invited the general public to celebrate the International Darwin Day.
