Zoo to Open in May

Date Published:

After  an investment of 7.5 million pesos, the first phase of the reconstruction and refurbishing of Santiago Zoo will be completed in May.

Santiago is located about 35 miles from San José del Cabo in Baja California Sur. (23 miles north of the Los Cabos International Airport) so is in easy driving distance from Los Cabos. The zoo features botanical gardens and has on display most of the wildlife of the Baja region.

The Director of Public Works and Human Settlement, Alejandro Rosas Canedo , reported that the upgrades were being done on the recommendation of SEMARNAT and PROFEPA to improve the site.

Among the improvements are upgrades to  enclosures, building an emergency veterinary care unit for the animals, new administrative offices, perimeter fencing throughout the area and construction of new washrooms for zoo visitors.

In addition to this investment, Canedo Rosas said the Federal Government has undertaken a comprehensive project consisting of an ecological park which also includes a botanical garden and areas for local wildlife. This larger project cost 75 million pesos.
