We would like to highlight several smart and engaging activities. Interactive incubator set up, where visitors can get an insight and glimpse into the very processes during hatching, organization of workshops. A Farmer's shed will be constructed specifically for implementation of workshops and lectures on the endangered animal species. Workshops will be presented within the park complex and also in several elementary schools in local area.
Professor Alenka Dovč, PhD, from Veterinary Faculty, University of Ljubljana, is in charge of organizing and conducting various workshops on several topics where attendees are introduced to specific animal species, their biology and level of their endangerment. The welfare of the animals is the main emphasis. Workshops are interactive with focus on discussions, participation and experiencing. Veterinary Faculty students provide assistance with organization and conduct workshops independently. Zootechnics (Animal Science) and Archeology students are also actively engaged in workshops. Their motto is "Together we can be even better".
