KUWAIT CITY, Oct 29: The continued closure of the Kuwait Zoo in Omariya, by a decision of the Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs and Fish Resources since March 2020, as a precautionary measure to prevent the outbreak of Covid 19 and limit its spread at that time is confusing, reports Al-Qabas daily.
Despite this closure, PAAAFR is committed to its keenness to maintain the areas in this facility and take care of all kinds of animals and birds on a periodic basis, to ensure that none of them die, and thus incur huge financial losses. According to informed sources in the authority, it obtained approvals from the regulatory authorities recently regarding sign a tender for the purchase and supply of various manure for the gardens, at a cost of up to 459,000 dinars, indicating that it will contribute to feeding the animals and birds, especially that the authority does not receive any visitors.
The sources informed Al-Qabas that no date has yet been set for reopening the doors of the Omariya Zoo, due to the failure to complete the work required within the comprehensive maintenance work, despite the many inquiries received by park management from citizens and residents about its reopening. The sources indicated that the modernization of the infrastructure, electrical installations, refrigeration equipment, and others, is one of the main reasons for delaying the opening until now.
