The most precious types of animals and why: 1. Roloway (Cercopithecus roloway) - only 10 individuals live in ten of the world's zoos (in fact, Europe)! There is no one in nature, but it will probably be just a few hundred. It is among the 25 most critically endangered primates of the world! 2. Mountain bongo (Boocercus euryceros isaaci) - The population in the zoo thrives, it is about 500, in their homeland the last 50 wild species of this subspecies antelope bongo survive. 3. Budorcas taxicolor bedfordi - although in Chinese zoos it is more frequent, there are only 19 zoo (only 5 females) in the Zoo world outside of two Japanese zoos. Approximately 5000 individuals live in nature.

The Zoo has greatly deserved to preserve and research the genofond of rare species: reintroduction of the lynx species in the Czech Republic and France, increase of the white boar population in the region, contribution to the reintroduction of owls in the Šumava National Park in recent years, strengthening of the local population of green-footed snakes and flames Owl; Lynx lynx lynx research, and the last immortal project of the chamois of the Tatra Mountains. Since 2007, as the first Slovak zoo, directly supports in situ a world project - namely West African primates in Ghana and Cote d'Ivoire within the WAPCA. In 2012 she sent to Bulgaria 12 socks of socks, including five Bojnicia borns. Birds subsequently raised offspring, which were first released into freedom in the history of the country. In 2014, we sent three owls to the reintroduction project in Austria.
