100 European mink at Tallinn zoo will get a new breeding facility

Tallinn zoo started to build a new breeding facility for the European mink. Currently used mink enclosures were built 20 years ago and needed to be replaced.

The new facility, which is located at a remote area in the zoo, will have five enclosure modules with 20 breeding pens (100 in total). In addition to the main enclosures, there will be four bigger pre-release enclosures at the end of four modules and a maintenance area for the mink keepers in the middle of the facility.

The construction work should end in June 2019.
