Nikolai Ankergen, a 24-year-old zoo owner from Denmark proves that millennials are bright entrepreneurs and multi-taskers. The once geeky game developer took on a thrilling responsibility of managing their family zoo. A safe haven for animals, which his family turned into a huge rescue center for exotic animals.
Most millennials of today live in a pad, sharing their spaces with friends and partners. But our millennial for today chose to live in his home with over 600 animals walking outside their house.
Nikolai was originally living his own life away from his parents who are managing a zoo in Denmark. He develops apps for games as his means of living.
But two years ago, his father succumbed to cancer, leaving his mother alone in taking care of the zoo. So Nikolai made the choice of returning home to help his mom oversee the animals.
There, the man realized how daunting it is to keep a zoo. From feeding, to cleaning and playing with 600 animals, Nikolai took charge of everything.
But the guy is not complaining despite the hardships. As a matter of fact, he wants the zoo to grow and keep more animals in.
And if you think 600 animals is quite a few for a zoo, well, Nikola’s zoo is not like the others. There, you will see different species that came from testing laboratories.
There are also neglected and abused pets that came with wounds and scars. In short, not all animals in this zoo are pretty like what you see in regular ones.
That’s because Nikolai’s parents dreamed of having a big center for rescue exotic animals to live in. They purchased an old zoo and turned it to what it is today. And it is because of Nikolai why the place is well maintained and continues to grow.
