We first time opened the gates of rescue station MALKIA PARK in Orechová Potôň on 3rd June 2016. Our primary aim is to create the most optimal living conditions for animals that we save from circuses and not appropriate domestic breeding conditions.
There are representatives many gens of felids (lions, tigers, leopards, jaguars, lynxes, pumas, cheetahs). We are especially looking forward to a rare guest – female of snow leopard named Hima which is the only one of its kind in Slovakia. You can see gibbons, capuchin monkeys and lemurs, parrots, meerkat or turtles from nearby. You can stroke and feed with our feedstuff ungulates (zebras, camel, donkeys, sheep, goats, lamas), rabbits, kangaroos, Hedgehog chickens and peacocks. In area of MALKIA Park you can find mobile aquarium with live sharks that was saved after the oil accident in Gulf of Mexico in 2010. Sharks have spent almost a year of treatment and adaptation to the new environment. Their rescuer didn´t have the resources to continue their care so they are in our care since the end of 2016.
You can also support us in our efforts. Any financial contribution will help us build new outings for animals, larger shark tanks, and provide food for all our wards. Thank you!
Do you realize what’s happening with animals in the world of the circus?
Wild animals are not safe from humans!
Is it right for animals to suffer because of human fashion?
Choose compassion instead of cruelty.
As part of the possibilities and respect for animals, we have created a space in MALKIA Park, where you can also get close contact with some species (rabbit, kangaroo, goat, capybara, pig). Access to these animals is only with the nurse, limited by the number of visitors and only in the specified times. For great lovers and enthusiasts, we have also prepared special packages that guarantee unforgettable experiences. In addition, you can become a nurse for one day and under the leadership of employees you can know more about some species of animals.
