Facilities at the center are very simple and in the first place functional. There are simple breeding aviaries, the fledging and rehabilitation releasing aviary, paddocks, area for feed preparation, quarantine and a simple infirmary. At the end of the year 2011, a house for volunteers was built.

Currently, overt 35 species of animals are bred at the conservation center (of which twenty-two are endemic species, another fifteen species are at different levels of threat). The center is run by five keepers.

Animals which get into the center are usually seized on the black market or they are exchanged with local breeders for more attractive species. Recently, with the spreading of the awareness about conservation of nature, the center has received some individuals also as a present. Some of the rescued birds are absolutely unique and are very poorly known among breeders and ornithologists. Experience with the breeding of these species is therefore in many ways a unique way of helping to reveal other “secrets” of biology and ethology of the species in the wild.

The project of the conservation breeding center is made possible through the effort and support of various foreign and local institutions and sponsors.[/fusion_text][/two_third][one_third last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” border_position=”all” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][title size=”2″ content_align=”left” style_type=”underline dotted” sep_color=”#dd0000″ margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” class=”” id=””]News[/title][postslider layout=”posts” excerpt=”20″ category=”spotlight” limit=”2″ lightbox=”no” class=”” id=””][/postslider][separator style_type=”none” top_margin=”20″ bottom_margin=”5″ sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=””][recent_posts layout=”thumbnails-on-side” hover_type=”none” columns=”1″ number_posts=”4″ offset=”” cat_slug=”news” exclude_cats=”spotlight” thumbnail=”yes” title=”yes” meta=”no” excerpt=”yes” excerpt_length=”20″ strip_html=”yes” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”down” animation_speed=”0.1″ class=”” id=””][/recent_posts][/one_third][content_boxes settings_lvl=”parent” layout=”icon-with-title” columns=”4″ icon_align=”left” title_size=”” title_color=”” body_color=”” backgroundcolor=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_radius=”” iconcolor=”” circlecolor=”” circlebordercolor=”” circlebordersize=”” outercirclebordercolor=”” outercirclebordersize=”” icon_size=”” icon_hover_type=”” hover_accent_color=”” link_type=”” link_area=”” linktarget=”” animation_delay=”” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.1″ margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” class=”” id=””][content_box title=”” icon=”” backgroundcolor=”” iconcolor=”” circlecolor=”” circlebordercolor=”” circlebordersize=”” outercirclebordercolor=”” outercirclebordersize=”” iconrotate=”” iconspin=”no” image=”” image_width=”35″ image_height=”35″ link=”” linktext=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=””] [/content_box][content_box title=”” icon=”” backgroundcolor=”” iconcolor=”” circlecolor=”” circlebordercolor=”” circlebordersize=”” outercirclebordercolor=”” outercirclebordersize=”” iconrotate=”” iconspin=”no” image=”” image_width=”35″ image_height=”35″ link=”” linktext=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=””] zoo_liberec200[/content_box][content_box title=”” icon=”” backgroundcolor=”” iconcolor=”” circlecolor=”” circlebordercolor=”” circlebordersize=”” outercirclebordercolor=”” outercirclebordersize=”” iconrotate=”” iconspin=”no” image=”” image_width=”35″ image_height=”35″ link=”” linktext=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=””] l_zooplzen200[/content_box][content_box title=”” icon=”” backgroundcolor=”” iconcolor=”” circlecolor=”” circlebordercolor=”” circlebordersize=”” outercirclebordercolor=”” outercirclebordersize=”” iconrotate=”” iconspin=”no” image=”” image_width=”35″ image_height=”35″ link=”” linktext=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=””] logo_faunus200[/content_box][/content_boxes][content_boxes settings_lvl=”parent” layout=”icon-with-title” columns=”3″ icon_align=”right” title_size=”” title_color=”” body_color=”” backgroundcolor=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_radius=”” iconcolor=”” circlecolor=”” circlebordercolor=”” circlebordersize=”” outercirclebordercolor=”” outercirclebordersize=”” icon_size=”” icon_hover_type=”” hover_accent_color=”” link_type=”” link_area=”” linktarget=”” animation_delay=”” animation_type=”0″ animation_direction=”left” animation_speed=”0.1″ margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” class=”” id=””][content_box title=”” icon=”” backgroundcolor=”” iconcolor=”” circlecolor=”” circlebordercolor=”” circlebordersize=”” outercirclebordercolor=”” outercirclebordersize=”” iconrotate=”” iconspin=”no” image=”” image_width=”35″ image_height=”35″ link=”” linktext=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=””] [/content_box][content_box title=”” icon=”” backgroundcolor=”” iconcolor=”” circlecolor=”” circlebordercolor=”” circlebordersize=”” outercirclebordercolor=”” outercirclebordersize=”” iconrotate=”” iconspin=”no” image=”” image_width=”35″ image_height=”35″ link=”” linktext=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=””] [/content_box][content_box title=”” icon=”” backgroundcolor=”” iconcolor=”” circlecolor=”” circlebordercolor=”” circlebordersize=”” outercirclebordercolor=”” outercirclebordersize=”” iconrotate=”” iconspin=”no” image=”” image_width=”35″ image_height=”35″ link=”” linktext=”” linktarget=”_self” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=””] [/content_box][/content_boxes]
