"Such policy will be imposed every Monday, which falls on February 3, 2014," said Wahyu Bambang, Head of Ragunan Zoo Public Relation, Tuesday (1/28).
Bambang said it aims to improve the welfare and comfort of the animals in the zoo. With a quiet atmosphere, the animal could feel more natural atmosphere.
"All this time, there has never been a animals holiday. During day off, Ragunan Zoo management will also use this moment to do improvements and create a better wildlife management," he stated.
As for animals, he furthered, remained in the cage. Yet it would be made more natural atmosphere. "If the day off for wildlife coincides with a national holiday, its policy is to replace the day off in the next day," he explained.
