Funds raised are being used to assist Ukrainian zoos to continue to provide food and care to animals in conditions of relative welfare and safety, as well as providing support for care staff and management at the zoos.  We have direct contact with Mykolayiv Zoo, Kharkiv Zoo and Kyiv Zoo, and indirect contact with other zoos via the Association of Zoos of Ukraine (AZU) and the contacts of our Members. Funds are being allocated on the basis of need according to the requests we receive from zoos, and are distributed to recipients through channels subject to reasonable due diligence. A full report on the fund and its use of donations to support Ukrainian zoos is available here.

On behalf of the recipients of your donations, EAZA would like to thank you all for your extraordinary generosity
