The Czech Crocodile Zoo also gave financial support for the building of exhibits for critically endangered Hornbill-species at the Kabankalan Rescue Center / DENR. This summer representatives of the Protivín Crocodile Zoo, Avilon Zoo and DENR signed Breeding Loan Agreement of phillipipines crocodiles. So Czech crocodile zoo has become an official participant in the Phillipine Crocodile Conservation Programm.
