Malaysia’s oldest Johor Zoo set to reopen by year-end after upgrades

The Johor Zoo, Malaysia’s oldest, is set to reopen its doors to the general public by the top of the year, following its closure in 2020 for upgrading work, according to Johor Mentri Besar Onn Hafiz Ghazi. The reopening is anticipated to take place with the consent of Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar.
Onn Hafiz made the announcement throughout his opening speech at the Johor Smart City Forum on the Persada Johor International Convention Centre. In February, it was reported that the 95-year-old zoo, located within the city, would obtain a new look upon completion of the upgrade.
Sultan Ibrahim emphasised the significance of remodeling the Johor Zoo into a key vacationer destination within the state, attracting both home and worldwide visitors. He highlighted the zoo’s historic significance, as it was founded by the late Sultan Sir Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Sir Abu Bakar and remains the oldest zoo in Malaysia.
Covert must focus on various aspects when restoration works are carried out, among them the drainage system, animal placement, ticket costs and a lot of more in order to appeal to visitors.”
