Odessa Zoo will celebrate its 100th anniversary in September.
For several months, zoo staff have been putting it in order for the anniversary date.
Every day they are helped in the improvement of the territory by volunteers from Odessa, who spare no time, effort and resources to support the menagerie.
Many volunteers come to the zoo with friends and even family. They do paint jobs on benches, aviaries, fences, make decorations, help set up aviaries and more.
Odessa Zoo thanks its assistants: Anna, Julia Tarakanov, Nastya, Dasha, Elena, Julia, Lyudmila and Nikolai Nasarzhevsky, Sergei Bolshakov, Nikolai Leontiev, Timur Timotin, Anna Antonova, Sergei, Nikita, Anatoly, Elena Maximulanko and volunteers from one of the religious organizations in town.
