They want to have a strong focus on animal welfare and nature conservation, while at the same time informing their visitors about animals and their habitats.
The zoo also focuses on indigenous culture and human impact on the environment.

He said they are also looking for at least 10 percent of indigenous workers and would work with Muru Muttigar, a non-profit organization, to help with recruitment.
