The Lao Conservation Trust for Wildlife (LCTW) is working hard to improve the Lao Zoo at Ban Keun, Thoulakom District, Vientiane Province, to transform it from a common zoo to a center for conservation and education.
The facility is currently undergoing renovations before it will be reopened to the public. The revamp will include upgraded enclosures for animals, a museum of natural science, and a wildlife education program with dedicated tours for visitors.
LCTW commenced its upgrades since July 2020, with the conservation center to be open for the public in 2021.
The zoo already maintains a rescue center that houses over 400 animals, with many of them soon to be re-released into Lao conservation forests.
LCTW expects to partner with the European Union and the Wildlife Conservation Organization to combat the illegal wildlife trade. The trust plans to launch a wildlife rescue hotline and provide training programs in wildlife rescue and rehabilitation.
