Hardly any of the visitors know how much work is done every day during a year in Nikolaev zoo.
The zoo needs hundreds of cubic meters of sawdust and a huge amount of sand for the animals’ enclosures.
Alex N. Leontovich, a great-grandson of Nikolay P. Leontovich, who was a Nikolaev Zoo founder, supports the zoo for a number of years, providing the badly needed sand absolutely free of charge. In 2017 he supplied 320 t of sand for the zoo.
We are much grateful to Alex N. Leontovich for his longstanding support.
