A Bison’s Post-Holiday Feast: German zoo finds a new purpose for unsold Christmas trees
At Zoo Berlin in Germany, the spirit of the holidays extends beyond December as unsold Christmas trees embark on a unique journey—they become the centerpiece of a post-holiday feast for elephants and bison.
Zoo Berlin in Germany is at the forefront of a heartwarming and eco-conscious new initiative giving unsold Christmas trees a change of fate — they are turning them into a festive feast for its beloved elephants and bison!
The tradition not only brings joy to the animals but also exemplifies Zoo Berlin’s commitment to sustainability and responsible waste management.
To safeguard the well-being of the animals during this post-holiday celebration, the zoo follows a meticulous process. Since the unsold fresh trees will become animal feed, they only source them from select vendors, ensuring that potential hazards like leftover decorations from the public are avoided. This careful selection not only guarantees the safety of the animals but also highlights the zoo’s dedication to providing a secure and enjoyable environment for its residents.
It’s pretty cute to watch the animals enjoy a post-holiday treat, too!
