Hidden disabilities sunflower
It can be stressful for people with invisible disabilities such as autism, Alzheimer's, brain damage or ADHD to visit tourist attractions. And it is also not always that the outside world can see it if a person has an invisible disability or a diagnosis that makes the person need extra support. That's why GIVSKUD ZOO - ZOOTOPIA is part of the Sunflower program. This means that the park's guests with special needs can be given a sunflower string, which is an international symbol of invisible disabilities and afflictions. Please ask for it at Ticket Sales.
