Five eye-catching art pieces comprising “Shoushan Giraffes,” “Flying Sheep,” “Our Childhood Memories,” “The Sweet Unicorn,” and “I see, Eye see” check-in spots were set up in five animal hotspots, including the primate zone, zebra zone and landscape meadow. 高雄市長陳其邁到壽山動物園,參觀「動物山友會」藝術打卡點,在「飛天小綿羊」前拍照。The Mayor is also learning about the health condition of the African lion, Ba, for which the public has been expressing concern recently. Ba’s health deteriorates due to age and hereditary renal disease, and the zookeeper and veterinarian continue to care for him. Besides thanking the zoo team for its effort, the Mayor also reminds them to give Ba opportunities for activities, and provide sufficient educational instructions and the Zoo’s valuable function of life education.

The progress of the New Zoo Movement is also a key area that the Mayor is concerned with. After listening to architect Jay Chiu’s design concept on the New Zoo Movement during the visit, the Mayor announces that the Zoo’s future development will focus on three key areas: “free land for animals,” “family paradise,” and “skywalk corridor.” He will also actively seek funding from the central government, and together with the effort of the private sector, present a brand new Shoushan Zoo to the public.高雄市長陳其邁(右)到壽山動物園,與邱文傑建築師(左)討論新動物園運動的主軸概念。高雄市長陳其邁到壽山動物園,預告將於近期啟動動物園升級計畫,大門口將以簡潔視覺風格呈現。高雄市長陳其邁到壽山動物園,預告將於近期啟動動物園升級計畫,立體空橋將打造漫步於空中的線性長廊,擁有全新遊園體驗。高雄市場陳其邁到壽山動物園,預告將於近期啟動動物園升級計畫,黑熊內舍展場將讓動物自由決定所在地。
