Where did you go to relax during this summer? Derby eland traditionally visited Czech zoos! This year, the so-called “Days with antelope” took place already in Jihlava zoo, Plzen zoo and Dvur Kralove zoo. August will include Ostrava zoo (13.8.) and Liberec zoo (27.8) and in September we will go to the zoo in Olomouc (3.9) and then even beyond, to the Slovak zoo in Bojnice (10.9). In the framework of the “Day with antelope” in a zoo you can meet our information stand, where volunteers inform about the importance of nature conservation, conservation programme of Western Derby eland in Senegal as well as their last refuge, Niokolo Koba National Park. For kids, we offer facepainting, colouring or drawing with chalk on the sidewalk. Do you want to support the conservation programme? During the “days with antelope” you can purchase a variety of promotional items with the motive of Derby eland.

Want to know more? Come to the zoo!

The main activities of Derbianus Coservation are focused on the conservation programme of Western Derby Eland (Taurotragus derbianus derbianus) in Senegal. For more informaton see section Conservation Programme
