Tell Karachi Zoo to Move Animals to Sanctuary

  • By: Animal Advocates
  • Target: Karachi Zoo Director Mr. Mansoor Qazi, South Asian Zoo Association for Regional Cooperation (SAZARC)

Sources say rising temperature could prove fatal to the captive wildlife at Karachi Zoological Garden  in Pakistan. Karachi is currently experiencing a severe wave of high temperature which left the rare species of Royal Bengal Tiger unconscious on Wednesday.

Animals at Karachi zoo are suffering of intense heat wave because zoo authorities have not accommodated proper arragements as per international standards for the caged animals.

The animals are exposed to direct, scorching sunlight with no sheds to protect them,- and without enough water to drink. The bathing facilities was only available for baby elephant, while there are no arrangements for other animals. The water that is available from water tanker service was not clinically tested for safety. Sources say the animals exposed to underground water from the tanker service were likely to develope skin disorders.

We ask that due to the state of emergency at the Karachi Zoo which could prove fatal, that the zoo relocate the captive animals at risk to a wildlife sanctuary for shade and water immediately, as per international standards for the caged animals.
