A BIG dog!? No, it’s a polar bear!


In the last week of August, children from substitute homes and safe houses from all over Estonia got to enjoy a traditional pre-school visit to Tallinn Zoo with the help of the non-profit association SEB Heategevusfond. In addition to seeing all sorts of birds and animals, the children had fun on trampolines, had their faces painted, enjoyed some tasty pancakes and took photos with family and friends.

For some of the smaller children, this was the first experience of seeing the animals so close and their emotions and questions were endless. They were curious about how the animals lived in the wild, what they were called, and what their life was like in the zoo.

The indisputable favourites of the children were the monkeys. The visit to their enclosures were the longest and all the information boards were carefully read. The cheerful animals made the children jump around in a similar way. The elephants and all other large animals created a lot of awe.

There’s always plenty of new things to see at the zoo, but the children also used the chance to share the knowledge they already had while watching the animals. Information boards explained a lot of new things about the habitats and habits of the wildlife, and gave the children a lot of new knowledge.

The trip was a nice change and an opportunity to stand side by side with some of the mightiest members of the animal kingdom. This experience will surely be useful later in school.
