Crucial conservation message

I refer to the letter headlined 'Jaguar needs a new home', from Keith Hemshall (South China Morning Post, July 16), which crossed with my letter published two days later about the collection at the Zoological and Botanical Gardens (ZBG). I would like to take this opportunity to provide additional information.

$1.5 million upgrade for jaguars' cages rejected

A PLAN to spend $1.5 million on better cages for the four jaguars in the Botanical Gardens, Mid-Levels, was rejected yesterday.

Urban councillors said the price was too high.

Cage wasting taxpayers' money

I AGREE with Dr Wedderburn (South China Morning Post, August 5), regarding the jaguars at the Zoological and Botanical Gardens. Of the $5.2 million allocated for the new cage, $1 million will be spent on artificial rocks. This is wasting taxpayers' money.All of the 600 square metres could be covered with Hong Kong granite for less than 10 per cent of $1 million.

Jaguars deserve more space

I REFER to the report headlined ''$5.2 million home for jaguars fuels row'' (South China Morning Post, July 15).

The jaguars should never have been placed in the Hong Kong Zoological and Botanical Gardens. What to do with them now is a real problem.

$5.2m home for jaguars fuels row

A $5.2 MILLION home will be built for the jaguars at the Hongkong Zoological and Botanical Gardens in Central.

But the Urban Council plan, which includes expensive artificial rocks to create a natural environment, has drawn fire from some councillors.

The Council's Recreation Select Committee yesterday approved the project.
