Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong said the city government is considering the proposed establishment of a zoo in the Summer Capital.
The Avalon Wildlife and Conservation Foundation has recently proposed to put up a P392-million zoo in the Botanical Garden.
Avalon said it needs 7.5 hectares for the project, but the Botanical Garden only has 3.8 hectares of available area.
The foundation said it plans to put up elevated walkways to compensate for the limited space.
Magalong, meanwhile, suggested that Avalon should also consider the city government’s 139-hectare property within the Mount Santo Tomas area as site for the zoo.
