Animals put up for ‘adoption’ at Langkawi Wildlife Park

LANGKAWI: Sarip the common racoon, Mingo the greater flamingo and Leman the blue-and-gold macaw are among more than 10 animals offered for adoption at the Langkawi Wildlife Park (LWP).

Park manager Nur Hamzani Hamzah said LWP introduced the adoption programme as a means to fund food supplies for the animals as its operation cost was affected by the movement control order (MCO) that resulted in fewer visitors to the park.

“Our source of income is from admission tickets, but due to the MCO, revenue was affected because there were not many visitors.

“Among our efforts is to invite the public to join our animal adoption programme. The public can also donate money or animal food such as grains and vegetables, ” she said.

She said LWP was also offering discounts on admission tickets in order to attract more visitors.

“For Langkawi residents, adults and children only need to pay RM10, valid until Nov 30. For others, the ticket rate is RM20 for adults and RM15 for children, ” she said.

The Langkawi SkyCab, among the highest cable car in the world at 708m, connecting the Oriental Village in Teluk Burau with Gunung Mat Chinchang, is also offering admission discounts for Langkawi residents.

A spokesperson for Panorama Langkawi Sdn Bhd said: “The ticket is priced at RM20 for adults and free for children below 12 years old.” — Bernama
