They need a lot more to improve this zoo some maintenance part is not properly done, while some cases is without animals ( visit on Sept 2011) hope they will improve, especially the facilities, animal hygiene  and health, i saw an obese Orang Utan here. Beside that more animal should be introduce in this zoo to attract more visitor like penguin, meerkat, Capybara, komodo dragon, tortoise,etc.
have a look at a zoo at America ( San Diego Zoo, California)
