Spring is in the air!


28. February 2014

Spring is in the air!

With the short winter Estonia has experienced, it’s not too early to celebrate the arrival of spring.

Baby animals at the Zoo

Tallinn Zoo, Paldiski mnt 145, Tallinn, close to the Rocca-al-Mare Shopping Centre

When spring arrives, so do the adorable newborn animals at Tallinn Zoo. Tallinn Zoo has the best collection of mountain goats and sheep in the world, as well as a stunning number of eagles, vultures, owl, and crane species. Many of the births happen in April, including the goats and camels, which are among the first to have babies. The crepuscular leopards can usually be seen romping around their enclosures in the early morning and late afternoon, and can be followed live on the web. In fact, many of the animals at the Tallinn Zoo can be watched via webcam.

Exhibition of Orchids
