Beyond providing an unforgettable experience for the visitors – the Ice Age Interactive Animal Exhibition of the Nyíregyháza Zoo conveys a new approach according to the latest zoo development tendencies: a responsible mind for the wildlife of the Earth, the sustainability of the symbiosis of men and animals, the protection of the endangered species and their territory and the respect of the animals from countries far away and their dignity. Meeting the Ice Age and the Arctic at close quarters gives a unique opportunity to consider life on the Earth in a temporal and spatial unity. And from this point of view man arrives as a visitor into nature, just like into the Nyíregyháza Zoo where the animals are the inhabitants.
