The administration of the Russian city of Yekaterinburg has presented a concept for a new zoo within the framework of the international exhibition 2017 INNOPROM, the body’s official website informs on Monday.
The report notes that a zoo will be a sort of gift for the 300th anniversary of Yekaterinburg. The space for animals is only part of the site built within the 300-PARK project in the area of Novokoltsovsky located in the south-west of the city.
“A new zoo occupies almost 35 ha, which is 17 times more than the territory of the existing one,” the statement reads.
According to a commercial director of Sinara-Development, Alexey Smirnov, the first phase will be put in operation by 2023.
