The construction of a new zoo inside the International Garden in Cairo’s neighborhood of Nasr city has been concluded, according to the state-owned al-Ahram.

The new zoo has been established in cooperation with Giza Zoo that supervised the implementation phases and provided the new zoo with rare species of birds and reptiles. Additionally, the Giza Zoo is responsible for the nutrition of animals and providing proper medical care.

Early this month, Egyptian Streets paid a visit to Giza Zoo to review the conditions of animals and their welfare. The animals were notably suffering from malnutrition and medical neglect.

Chairman of the Specialized Gardens Project Mohamed Sultan said that he had agreed with several Arab and foreign embassies to develop their partitions in the International Garden and provide them with some of their countries features that reflect their cultures.

Furthermore, the general manager of the Giza Zoo, Mohamed Ragaey Abdel-Hameed, told Ahram Online that the zoo is celebrating the birth of four new babies. Veterinarians were assigned to attend the new babies and their mothers.

Recently, multiple campaigns have emerged calling on the government to pay more attention to the deteriorating conditions of animals in Giza Zoo. One of them is Let’s Zoo Egypt which aims at creating better living conditions for animals there.

Egypt is in need of new public parks and green area. There are only a few public parks where families are allowed to spend their weekends for humble prices. There are a total of eight gardens offering the perfect place for a picnic. Among the gardens are el-Andalus, el-horreya park, el-Orman botanical garden, Al-Azhar park and Giza Zoo.

Entrance fees to most of Egypt’s public gardens are very affordable costing about 5 EGP.
