Things to remember when visiting our animals

To make sure that both the animals at Kulturen’s Östarp and our visitors stay healthy, please keep the following in mind:

  • Wash your hands or use hand sanitiser both before and after you touch the animals and before you have anything to eat. Clean hands are important in preventing the spread of infection between animals and humans. Hand sanitiser is provided for your use at several points around the site.
  • Let the animals come to you, don’t chase them!
  • Don’t feed the animals!
