Every bit of help counts!

Bern Animal Park strives to make the animals’ lives as close to nature, species-appropriate and interesting as possible. However, improvements in animal husbandry are always possible, but they cost money. In addition to improvements in animal husbandry, help for the Bern Animal Park, whether from individuals or companies, helps to bring as many people as possible closer to nature and to be able to show them the animal world and its interrelationships. There are many ways to support the Bern Animal Park. With a Sponsorship, a membership in the Animal Park Association Bern, with the purchase of a voucher, with a direct donation to the Gabusfonds or the Nature and Species Conservation Fund. We would be very pleased if you would also like to support the Bern Animal Park and its inhabitants.
