The aim of the project is to create a functioning Zoo Police: a responsible society and meaningful public support.

The idea of the Zoo Police is a fully-fledged public control mechanism, which works as support and partner for national and local authorities in ensuring animal protection and welfare.

The Zoo Police is also a supporting platform for all individuals (possibility of advice on animal protection issues) and for the most active part of society, who want to fully and deliberately engage in animal protection (voluntary team - public animal protection inspectors) and animal protection NGOs, particularly outside Riga and suburbs of Riga (support measures).

As part of the project, activities cover two important blocks: the development of responsible volunteering and active participation in public administration. The Foundation intends to act regularly and actively in the development of regulatory enactments and policy-making in the animal protection sector, as well as in updating and clarifying problems (discussions, conferences with industry experts)
