Article: Start taking care of zoo animals first

Tuesday August 25, 2009

THE problems Zoo Negara is facing is not new.

It is poorly managed.

In 2003, pygmy hippopotami, penguins, tigers, antelopes, zebras and giraffes reportedly died as a result of the management's neglect and poor decision making.

The Malaysian Zoological Society seems incapable of running the zoo.

Even if the Government approves more funds for the zoo, the situation is unlikely to improve.

Animals in zoos are completely dependent on people. When money is lacking or when there are malpractices, it is always the animals that suffer or die.

A zoo that is struggling to stay open and can't look after its animals properly should be shut down.

A well managed zoo is the result of having a knowledgeable zoo director who makes every effort to ensure the animals are well treated and live in comfort.

A wise director keeps his inventory under control.

Zoo animals can become listless and bored. The challenge is to keep them physically and mentally stimulated.

Zoo Negara should focus on expanding its animal welfare further and do away with animals in cages.

The Ministry of Natural Resources should probe the goings-on in the zoo and make the findings public.

The zoo should be competent, accountable and transparent.


President, Sahabat Alam Malaysia,
