A new, modern botanical and zoo park will be founded in the canyon of
Hrazdan, Yerevan. The representatives and directors of Amsterdam's and
Singapore's zoo parks and `Wild nature and cultural values protection'
organization have had discussion in the Municipality of Yerevan.
The sketches are ready and they've been introduced to the Mayor,
Municipality's information and PR department told Panorama.am. The
Mayor liked the sketches and promised to support the project.
According to the project the local residents and foreign guests may
enjoy different plants, animals, birds common to our climatic
conditions. Several types of animals recorded in the Red Book are
supposed to be taken to the park for permanent residence, which could
contribute to reducing the danger level.
A scientific-research center and college should also be founded in the
park where students from South Caucasus may study. All the necessary
things to provide comfort and pleasure to the park's residents and the
visitors will be guaranteed.
The Municipality representative said that 60-year-old Yerevan zoo park
will also accept visitors.
