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.
Since mid-June, the Africa enclosure at Basel Zoo has had a new main attraction: a young zebra. Shortly after the birth, the mother and foal headed out into the enclosure with the rest of the herd and have since been delighting the zoo’s visitors.
Basel Zoo is adjusting its admission and season ticket prices as well as increasing its commitment to conservation by introducing voluntary conservation contributions.
