On Saturday, November 23rd, 2013, at noon a farewell party with Acra - one of the three Amur leopard puppies born last year - took place. Acra was the first one ready to fly the nest and leave for a new home.
Tallinn Zoo, our partner AS DBT and NGO Friends of Tallinn Zoo invited their friends to say good-by to Acra in the main square of the zoo. In a specially erected warm tent zoologist Aleksei Tourovski spoke about leopards sharing information about Amur leopards being one of the most endangered species in the world (only several dozens of Amur leopards live freely in nature). Trivia games, awards and sweeties were waiting for children.

Acra was the first one to leave Tallinn Zoo for Moscow Zoo, which becomes her home already this week. Two other Amur leopard puppies, Freya and Vlada stay home so far. Acra’s send-off was simultaneously an expectation for new hopes: Darla – the super-mum of the puppies and her partner Freddy will meet again after a 1.5 year recess to get off a possible birth for a new leopard generation.
