A campaign to develop a plastic-free zone will be launched at Yangon Zoological Garden this year, according to a report in the Myawady Daily yesterday.
“Currently, we are planning to create a plastic-free zone at Yangon Zoological Garden. Also, we are optimising the land, decorating the garden, and conducting drawing, 3D board art and street art painting sessions,” said U Pyae Sone Myo, director of the Zoological Gardens Division, Forest Department.
The Forest Department has granted permission to Htoo Company to upgrade the Yangon Zoological Garden.
The public’s participation is also important to assure that the plastic-free zone campaign is a success. “Most animals living in Yangon Zoological Garden are wild. Therefore, we are feeding the animals according to international norms,” he added.
More travellers are visiting the Yangon Zoological Garden, which is being upgraded to meet international standards.
“We are planning to provide more recreational services to the public,” U Pyae Sone Myo said.
