Zoo Osnabrück

From 22 June to 28 July 2019, the United Buddy Bears - The Minis can be seen in Osnabrück Zoo. Here they will bring the message of peaceful coexistence to all zoo visitors and take them on a journey around the globe. Each sculpture represents a country of the United Nations, its population, flora and fauna and culture, and was individually designed by an artist of the respective country.

The exhibition is based on the well-known motto of the United Buddy Bears:

"We need to get to know each other better ...,
... then we can understand each other better,
trust more and live better together. "

The exhibition was held on Saturday, June 22, 2019, and opened by Federal President a.D. Christian Wulff and the  Minister of the Interior in Lower Saxony Boris Pistorius. Both politicians gave speeches on "The Art of Tolerance" and emphasized the importance of this principle in these days. Please find the speech of Mr. Pistorius here (in German).
About 100 invited guests took part in the festive opening ceremony, including representatives from politics and business. Most of the guests had donated 2,500 EUR - 2,000 Euros went to the enlargement of the lion's enclosure and 500 Euros to the children's ambassador of Children's Ambassador John McGurk.
