The press service of the Moscow Zoo announced the launch of a New Year's campaign to collect Christmas trees, pines and firs. These trees will not only decorate aviaries, but also become a new toy or a useful treat for animals.

The zoo will accept conifers from companies only until January 10. Christmas trees from private individuals can be dangerous for animals. Fragments of plastic or glass ornaments, tinsel, garlands and artificial snow often remain on their branches. In addition, trees that have been standing indoors for a long time lose their fragrance and become uninteresting to animals.

The institution said that almost all zoo residents like to play with thorny trees. Screw-horned goats, blue sheep, Asian elephants and alpacas are not averse to eating spruce branches. Needles are rich in vitamin C, carotene and beneficial amino acids. Eastern European lynxes, cougars, tigers and Far Eastern leopards like to use firs and pines as a scratching post. Smaller cats are also not averse to sharpening their claws on fragrant bark: a reed cat, a steppe cat and a Far Eastern forest cat.
