The zoo was in 1977 local nature lovers with the aim of environmental education and training, the use of their gene pool, the study of wild fauna and the scientific basis for captive breeding. The initiator of the creation was the Menchanin militia sergeant Gennady Polosmak. The collection is based on his animals (parrots, canaries, rabbits) and seized braker animals (wolves, foxes, roe deer). In 1975, on the site taken from the district council, the creation of the zoo began. The Mena Zoo was granted the status of a zoological park of national importance by the decision of the Council of Ministers of the Ukrainian SSR dated July 22, 1983, No. 311. Due to the economic situation in the 1990s, the zoo management had to sell part of the collection.
