ODESA, FEBRUARY 21st, 2013, CONTEXT-PRICHERNOMORIE ― Exposure of the penguins and Tropicario will be created in Odesa Zoo, Context-Prichernomorie correspondent reports.

As the agency was informed today, 21 February, by the Odesa City Council Information Office, these and other changes are provided for the Odesa Zoo Reconstruction and Development Programme 2013-2022 Zoo-100 adopted on 19 February at the session of the City Council.

It is supposed that the programme will allow getting a fundamentally new zoo that meets the requirements of the modern world for ten years.

As part of the programme our collection of animals will be significantly increased, Odesa Zoo Science and Strategic Development Director Igor Belyakov said. There will be species and groups of animals, which Odesa Zoo has not had before. The Night World pavilion will settle cheiroptera: bats, flying foxes, and others. The creation of Bears Island exposition will expand the collection of bears to four species. There will be new spacious cages for canines and their collection will also increase. For the first time penguins will appear in Odesa Zoo, and Tropicario will be built many species of arthropods.

The programme provides the construction of an amphitheater for public events.

Total funding of this programme amount UAH 99 million.
