Sections of Georgetown zoo to be rehabilitated

first_imgThe Guyana Zoological Park, located within the Botanical Gardens, will experience a long-awaited rehabilitation. This was announced by the Department of Environment, Ministry of the Presidency.An empty cage at the ZooIn a notice published in the newspaper on Friday, the National Parks Commission, which falls under the Department of Environment, invited bids for the “execution of the rehabilitation of enclosures and exhibits for birds” within the park.Bids for the project will be read on Tuesday, August 13, 2019.The announcement of this rehabilitation falls in the face of a previous disclosure made by former Business Minister Dominic Gaskin, who had the responsibility for Guyana’s tourism to construct a safari-type facility for the remaining animals.The zoo, which was formerly one of the most exciting places to visit as a child, has deteriorated over the years to become a habitat for birds and some reptiles.With the number of animals in the “once magical” destination dwindling, the former Business Minister told this newspaper back in March that plans were in the making for a better zoological park.According to him, the Guyana Wildlife Conservation and Management Commission (GWCMC) was considering a safari-type zoo.“We would like to be able to showcase some of our wildlife, but in conditions that are internationally acceptable. If that means moving the zoo to somewhere where there is more space or having a more safari-type facility, then so be it, but I am not sure what the long-term plan is, I only know that it is being looked at and that there are regulations specifically dealing with zoological parks”.The former Minister said although the Government is considering moving the zoo, no new location has been identified to his knowledge.The former Minister would only say, “I know that there are plans to do some, well to implement, some new regulations concerning the treatment of wildlife, as well as how zoos or a whole set of regulations for zoos and a few other areas related to wildlife activities”.He added, “All I know is that it is modern regulations and it is designed to really change the way we do things when it comes to the zoo. I’m not even sure whether the zoo, as it is, is going to continue or how it is going to be operated after the regulations take effect”.The zoo officially opened its gates to the public back in 1952. Its grounds have been used as the Botanical Gardens since 1895.The filled cages with harpy eagles and hungry lions once managed to transform a child’s face in seconds from being excited when the eagles flew around to say hello, to afraid when the lions roared to ask for some food.Instead, when Guyana Times visited the zoo recently, the dull environment merely had a few birds, exotic cats, including the Jaguar and about two others. Huge snakes, caimans, turtles, and monkeys were among the few animals that could have been seen.Over at the petting zoo within the park were a few donkeys, turtles, and goats along with a few disappointed children, who never even bothered to touch the animals.last_img read more

Why does Mourinho want Alvaro Morata? These five reasons explain his interest

first_imgManchester United is looking the increasingly likely destination for one of this summer’s most in-demand players, Alvaro Morata.Before the end of the campaign, reports suggested Chelsea would be the club pushing for the Real Madrid man’s signature, but confirmation of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s release has seen United up their game for a replacement striker.With plenty of other forwards perhaps available in the market, why then has Jose Mourinho picked Morata?We’ve detailed five reasons explaining what could be behind the Red Devils boss’ interest in the Spaniard – scroll through the gallery above to check out our reasoning. 5 3. Man United’s Spanish connection – A Spanish core of players at United has slowly been established in recent years. David De Gea, Ander Herrera and Juan Mata have all become key to the club, even more so under Mourinho. Add a Spanish striker to the mix and chemistry on the pitch should improve. Take Cesc Fabregas’ on-field understanding with Diego Costa in their debut 2014/15 season at Chelsea as an example of the benefit of having those who regularly play together at international level. Mata and Morata could develop a similar relationship. 5 2. His selfless style of play – Nobody will be blown away by his goalscoring stats, but it’s easy to overlook his overall contribution. Morata isn’t a centre forward always looking to have a shot on goal. He can be defined as being a ‘hybrid’ striker. The Spaniard’s role is about more than capitalising on space in the box. His hold-up play is excellent, and despite being 6ft 2, Morata’s pace can be game-changing on the counter-attack. His style of play would prove a nuisance for Premier League defenders. 5 1. His winning experience at big clubs – click the arrow above, right, to take a look at four more reasons explaining Jose Mourinho’s interest in Morata at Manchester United – Morata has established himself in the senior squad of two of Europe’s biggest teams: Real Madrid and Juventus. He might not have been the regular starter he wanted to be, but he has been a key player for both, learning first-hand to cope with the pressure of silverware being a necessity to any season. Such expectations are no different at Manchester United. He’s not a prolific goalscorer, but has a mightily impressive honours list: including two LaLiga titles, two Serie A titles and two Champions Leagues. Despite being only 24 years old, Morata has the experience in the big games that Mourinho knows is important to any big club. 5 4. His young age – Zlatan Ibrahimovic proved an excellent signing by United, but his age, 35, meant that his stay was only ever going to be short. If Mourinho is committed for the long run, he must build for the future. Morata might be a name we’ve become familiar with, but he’s only 24 years old. In other words, he’s not yet reached his peak. Last season was the Spaniard’s best goal return in his career to date; he scored 15 in LaLiga, and should continue to improve on his stats. 5 5. Jose Mourinho’s relationship with the player – It was Mourinho who handed Morata his first-team debut at Real Madrid. In 2013, when confronted with questions over the striker, the Portuguese said: “Who called him up for pre-season with the first team, three times? Me. Who stopped him leaving? Me. Who gave him a first-team contract? Me. Who arranges all that? Me.” Mourinho doesn’t hand debuts to any player; it takes a special talent to catch his eye. Managers don’t forget players they brought through and there will be a bond between the two.last_img read more
