Yes, we spent 14 years, resulting in our colleague organisations in the UK paying for two brown bears to be flown to a Hungarian sanctuary. Then three leopards flown to South Affrica via London. And last week two raccoons to a sanctuarty in the Netherlands. Hndreds of thousands of euros.

The size of the Limassol zoo is a football pitch. In one enclosure alone there will be 51 animals of otter/mongoose size. These otters can dive under water for 6 - 8 minutes. Lamas and camels are large animals.

Please email me if you would like more information.

They have rehomed all the big animals to zoos elsewhere in Europe and are setting up a new zoo that will only house smaller animals. It is being bult now apparently. My vet is the zoo vet and says it is going to be really good.
