Three female muntjacs came to Basel Zoo from Leipzig Zoo at the end of June, bringing the number of female muntjacs in the zoo’s rhino enclosure to five. They have been building a special cohabiting community with the rhinos, otters and peacocks.
An extraordinary story is currently unfolding at Basel Zoo, where a female white-eye is helping to rear young chestnut-backed thrushes and is enthusiastically flying food to their nest. This behaviour has never previously been observed at Basel Zoo.
Basel Zoo is adjusting its admission and season ticket prices as well as increasing its commitment to conservation by introducing voluntary conservation contributions.
