Katowice Zoo News
Old 28-12-2011

Some rumours on renovations at the zoo in Katowice:
a) New Giraffe House and exhibit.
They received 2 hybrid males from Wroclaw earlier when the latter changed to reticulated giraffe.
b) New Rhino House and exhibit.
Apparently, the old breeding male Bos has died (confirmation please). Sad as of old it was the only breeding pair in Poland with consecutive breeding success (allthough the female could now be considered post-reproductive. Curiously, both the latest offspring still seem to reside there .... (I would sent the young female to a proven breeding institution and bring in 2 new females for the locally bred male Zulus.

Any new info on the above?

Both giraffes from Wrocław Zoo died in 2010. Last giraffe in Chorzów (Katowice) Zoo died this year.
You are absolutely right about rhinos (Boś died this summer), but I think that zoo will do nothing with it. Chorzów Zoo is rather reluctant to cooperation with other zoos, especially abroad.
Giraffe/Rhino House had small renovation only. So new Giraffe and Rhino Houses are rather in plans for far future.

Came across something named Zoo Proactive in Archinea.
Is this for real for Katowice Zoo?

Zoo Proactive is a project designed by Anna Struska, student of architecture at Silesian High School of Technology. The main idea is to stop degradation and importance decline of Silesian Park where zoo is situated. I would rather treat this project as an academic study although it seems to be very interesting.

Any more precise dates for when the giraffe males Selim (ex Wroclaw), Safi (ex Wroclaw), Ecik (longterm Chorzow resident) and a female born 12/1/2005 with no particular name died exactly?

Not much seems to happen here ...


They did open a new Antelope House.
