Riga Zoo, Riga (Latvia)

Riga Zoo is a city-owned zoo in Riga Latvia. It is located in the Mezaparks neighborhood next to the Mezaparks park on the western bank of ezers lake. Riga Zoo houses around 4000 animals of nearly 500 species and is visited by 250-300000 visitors annually. The zoo offers various sponsorship options and states that it will accept any kind of sponsorship except if it contradicts the goals of the zoo - humane handling of animals no trading or hunting of wild animals - or promotes addiction-forming products. One can become an honorary guardian of an animal by donating 10 Latvian lats or more by becoming a guardian a person or company receives a plaque inscribed with their name or logo placed next to the funded animal. Sponsors who have donated more than 500 lats also receive a plaque in a stand near the central entrance of the zoo. If many sponsors have contributed to the building of an animal house a stand listing all sponsors may be placed at the animal house in question. Sponsors who have contributed more than 50% of funding for an animal house can also name the building. Riga Zoo enacts several scientific research and wildlife conservation projects.
