Chittagong Zoo to procure six zebras from South Africa
In a bid to attract more visitors, the authorities of Chittagong Zoo are going to procure three pairs of zebras from South Africa. At present, the zoo does not have any zebra. Member Secretary of Chittagong Zoo Executive Committee Ruhul Amin told the Dhaka Tribune: “The zebras will cost Tk40 lakh. We will procure them with our own fund.” He said: “The deputy commissioner of Chittagong who is also a member of Chittagong Zoo executive committee has given his consent regarding procurement of the mammals. “If everything goes accordingly, the zebras will be in the zoo within three months.”

Amin said: “We will construct an enclosure for the zebras and then float an international tender to procure the animals. We hope that the number of the visitors will increase after the addition of the zebras.” However, the zoo still lacks big animals like giraffe, elephant, rhinoceros and hippopotamus. Set up on February 28, 1989, the zoo is now located in a six-acre of hilly terrain land in Foy’s Lake area. Run by Chittagong district administration, the zoo now houses 360 animals of 67 species. The zoo now hosts tiger, lion, capped langur, hoolock gibbon, rhesus macaque, peafowl, fishing cat, jungle cat, barking deer, peacock, pied hornbill, large civet, leopard cat, griffon vulture, marsh crocodile, stork, yellow turtle, Indian python and Bengal fox.
