New petting Zoo in the works

Proposed Petting ZooWhen the project was first announced, the Head of the Presidential Secretariat, Dr Roger Luncheon, had described it as foolishness, but he has since had a change of heart.

Petting zoos usually feature domestic animals and some wild animals docile enough to interact with, such as to feed and play with.

The Minister of Natural Resources Robert Persaud said that an outreach to the private sector to help in the development of the master plan for the development of the wider Botanical Gardens and Zoological Park has not attracted the desired results.

Commission of the National Protected Areas Commission Damian Fernandes said the establishment of the petting zoo is one way by which the Commission hopes to attract more revenue to upkeep and develop the Botanical Gardens and the Zoo.
