The Līgatne nature trails of Gauja National Park were created in 1975 to acquaint visitors with nature, the species of wild mammals living in Latvia, the natural diversity and the necessity of its protection.
Forest animals found on the Līgatne nature trails are brought from different places in Latvia. These are young animals that were either wounded when found or domesticated and which cannot survive without human care and are unable to find food themselves.
