"Our favorite zoo has many things to do, and we would like to call for help volunteers who want to help us. We have many objectives and plans. If you are not indifferent to animals and you like the idea to benefit society, we wait for you. "This is a quote from the call published on the page of Tashkent Zoo on Facebook.
To understand what happened at the zoo, and why they suddenly needed help of volunteers, Uzbekistan Today correspondent met with the director of the institution Bakhodir Musaev. Here what the expert said on this occasion:
– We are fine. Same as before, our friendly staff copes with the tasks and cares about seven thousand animals.
And the call we issued on social networks is nothing more than a call for everyone to join the beautiful – to nature. Little by little we "try on" the experience of our foreign colleagues.
We do not want in any way to pass our work to our visitors. And we have no work which can be entrusted to an inexperienced person. Since animal and engineering systems care of our zoo requires certain skills and knowledge.
We just want to make the zoo better and our visitors can help us in this. We will arrange field trips for the members of our campaign and then we will ask them to share their opinions on what can be improved.
But, of course, evaluation of viability of the proposals and feasibility of the project, as well as their practical implementation, is work of our experts.
