Um...if you're not sure why I opened this thread, I hope you'll confirm the my first post that I wrote at New Member Introductions. As I said in that post, I want to improve the Jinyangho Zoo in Jinju City, my home town. I think this year is a very important year to improve Jinyangho zoo. I've been thinking about this all by myself. But now, I also want to ask for zoochatter's helps. To sum up the situation, Jinyangho Zoo has plans to move to another place in six to seven years, but the Jinju city has earmarked a $350,000 budget for this year to attract visitors. However, the Jinyangho Zoo is trying to spend half of that money to using facility repair, and another half to using buy new animals, such as lions and leopards, but I am trying to stop them from buying new animals that they thinks, because their all of animal enclosures are so bad. Fortunately, I know the contact number of the planning officer there. at last November, He gives me his business card and said me, "If you have any good ideas about the zoo, contact me." So, this time, I'm going to visit the planning officer again and collect ideas that to print and deliver to him. Because I think it would be better to take something useful information than just go and talk with an empty hand. I have many ideas about that, but now I think mainly two plans. The first is to expand the South american coati exhibit at there, and the second is to provide enrichment toys for animals to use. Jinyangho Zoo started raising a pair of South american coatis around last year, but the breeding space is very small and simple. Because their coatis exhibit was used in the past as the inner chamber of lions and tigers. So while a wider outdoor enclosure is connected next to coatis exhibit, but Jinyangho Zoo tries to breed lions again there. I try to block that plan, install a lope bridge and complex structure there, and dried-up pond at there fill by soil. so that there coatis can climb up structures, and dig up the soil. I attach a picture of Jinyangho zoo's coati exhibit. Please let me know if you have a good idea or If you have in information about great coati exhibit in a foreign zoo. This pictures are coati enclosure at Jinyangho Zoo now. And this pictures are where I want to make it an outdoor coati enclosure. Now it's empty, and the floor is hard concrete, but there's a dry pond. so I think fill that pond to soil and install more structure there, coatis can dig and play. The plan to provide enrichment toys to animals is planed start first to tigers and bears. My idea is simply, pick up abandoned buoys from the beach and hang them from the ceiling of enclosure, but I also hope you'll let me know if you have a more and better ideas or If you have any information that might be useful. For you can reference, I will attach videos and photos about Jinyangho zoo's tiger and bear enclosure. This video shows one of the two tiger enclosure at the Jinyangho Zoo. there are another tiger enclosure is next to it, which is almost identical to this. As shown in this picture, both tiger enclosure have iron bars on the ceiling so can hang something. The place in this video is the bear enclosure at the Jinyangho Zoo. There is an Asian black bear on the left and a Brown bear on the right. The whole since of bear enclosure is like this.
