DEAR FRIENDS, ZOO ENTHUSIASTS, AND ZOO FANATICS !!
At the time when I am writing this text, the situation
is difficult, and as we all know, not only because of the ongoing
covid-19 epidemic. One can only hope that it will not get any worse and
that our meeting will take place.
The 32nd meeting of the collectors of zoo literature
and memorabilia (aka Zoohistorica) is planned for September 10, 2022. at
Zoo Praha – Prague Zoo. So six months are left to make the right
preparations and to book accommodation.
What is known today:
09/09/22 (Friday) - the ice-breaker on Friday is
definitely not planned - booking a few tables in Prague's Old Town on
Friday evening, for an uncertain number of people, is very risky and
will generate additional costs. So, go for a beer in a friendly company
on your own.
10/09/22 (Saturday) - according to the traditional
program: the exchange session starts in the morning. During the session:
Director’s welcome speech, group photography, free time, guided tour of
the zoo, joint lunch, and afternoon auction.
11/09/22 (Sunday) - most likely a visit to Zoo-Safari
Dvur Kralove (145 km from Prague). Still to be confirmed by the zoo
The cost of attending the meeting is not yet known. I
am going to a working meeting at the Prague Zoo in the second half of
April. So I hope to send you more detailed information on the program
and costs in early May.
I don't intend to create an application form. If you
wish to participate, please write to the below e-mail address. Include
your first and last name and the country of residence or country of
origin. If possible include the first and last name of the accompanying
person if you plan on bringing one and they don't sign up themselves. It
is important to include the information about the table assigned for the
exchange session, as well.
I hope to see most of you in Prague, best regards.
