Help fund food for zoo animals in Ukraine
A zoo in Nikolaiv, Ukraine is under fire and running out of food. You can help - here's how.
Will keep this post as succinct as I can. The Nikolaev Zoo, named after the city it is located in near the warfront in southern Ukraine, is running out of food for its animals. They have taken some shelling as well and things will presumably get worse before they get better. The zoo has asked for donations and published its banking information online, but people have reported problems sending money this way,
so instead they are encouraging people to donate by buying tickets to the zoo instead.
UPDATE: The European Association of Zoos and Aquaria has set up a donation system that will send funds to the Nikolaev Zoo. It will also distribute funds to zoos in Kharkiv and Kyiv, which are in a similar situation! Please visit their system here and donate whatever you can.
Thanks all! I won’t send donation requests like this out over email and I’ll avoid spamming this site with too many of them, but readers have asked me if I know of anything they can do to help so I’ll try to put some little ideas up like this when I can.
