The Animal Love Festival is between the 4-6th October (Friday-Sunday) in Budapest Zoo & Botanical Garden. The official closing event of ZOO4NAT project takes place one day before, on Thursday.


On the occasion of World Animal Day, from 4th to 6th October, Friday to Sunday, we will host the Animal Love Festival at the Budapest Zoo and Botanical Garden. This year the main topic is animal rescue, and we will focus on this topic at the press conference on the 3rd October. Our staff will show you rescued animals, tell unique story, and show how caregivers deal with the rescued animals.

The Budapest Zoo and Botanical Gardens annually takes care of 1500-2000 rescued animals. These are wild, protected or highly protected species native to Hungary that require human assistance due to injury, poisoning, debilitation,
 or because they are orphans. More than half of the rescued animals are birds, but there are also small mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Various saved birds and mammals will be featured at the event. Details of other programs organized between Friday and Sunday are included in the attached poster.
