So: the place is called Nordens Ark, ie the Nordic Ark. It's a zoo which focuses exclusively on two things: species that are threatened by extinction, and species that belong in our type of climate. (Ie, nothing tropical or subtropical, except a few of the species in the reptile house.) The park is in Hunnebostrand in Bohuslän in Sweden. It took about three hours to drive there from Oslo. I went on a day trip yesterday with three of my friends - my best friend C., who drove us, KAS and her boyfriend trilltrall.
This was what we saw when we got there.
It looked good. But we had no idea just how good it was going to be. :-)
