Lahore Zoo to Temporarily Close for Major Upgrade

The Lahore Zoo is set to undergo a temporary closure beginning on November 7, lasting for three months. This closure is part of a significant upgrading project, with an estimated cost of approximately Rs. 5 billion. The primary goal of this project is to elevate the visitor experience by incorporating virtual reality interactions with endangered species and introducing new additions like pandas.

During this temporary closure, the animals currently residing in Lahore Zoo will be carefully relocated to Changa Manga and Jallo Forest Safari Park. To facilitate a seamless transition, the zoo administration has established a dedicated committee tasked with providing recommendations for the animal relocation process. Once these recommendations receive approval, the animals will be relocated accordingly.

This ambitious project is geared towards enhancing the facilities for both visitors and the zoo’s diverse animal population. At present, Lahore Zoo is home to nearly 1,300 animals, including many from endangered species. The expected outcome of this initiative is not only to improve the zoo but also to increase attendance and raise public awareness of animal conservation efforts.
