A zoo is very complex. There is more to it than just building homes for animals. For example, there are the edifices all around. In and around the site are various exhibits as well. When constructing buildings in the complex, numerous issues have to be addressed. The soil must be of good quality so it can handle large structures. Second, the site itself must be accessible and spacious. Holding exhibits and other shows necessitate this. Not to mention of course, that it must be able to accommodate large crowds. Protection against the Elements The costs of running a zoo are increased by the weather factor. When making homes for various animals, extreme forms of weather must be accounted for. The area is prone to intense heat, so many exhibits will require air-conditioning and back up systems. Cambodia has heavy rain fall here so drainage is most important comes, the structures must be built to survive typhoons and protect the animals. All of these things require study and planning. Experts in the field need to assess the efficiency of the buildings. During construction, its durability will be assessed. All of these require a serious budget. After a typhoon or heavy rain, the edifices will need to be inspected or checked for damages. These activities cost money too.
Getting the Animals There are a lot of issues that need to be assessed here. In no small way do they raise the costs of running a zoo. First we have to choose what animals to bring in. Of course these animals cost money not only to purchase but to transport. We need to conduct research on every single one. Where are they from? What kind of food do they eat? Does it need a body of water to live in? What type of shelter is required? Does it need plenty of sunshine or does it require cool weather? Does it prefer shade or the open air? Habitats are most important Safety Precautions Knowing the behavior and habits of each animal is critical. When determining the costs of running a zoo, this cannot be ignored. The personnel in charge must know how far the animal can jump, so the right wall can be created. Does it dig the ground, or destroy walls ? At the same time we need to make sure its comfortable. If its shy, you should put the animal in an area with plenty of shade. Put it in places where it most feels at home, whether it is rocky, swampy etc. at the same time ensuring the viewing public can see the exhibit. Personnel Part of the expenses goes to the people running the place. These include the exhibit designers, animal caretakers, curators, guides and many more. The food and maintenance also drive up the costs. The costs of running a zoo are very high. But they are absolutely necessary. Without the right funding, the safety of the animals and guests will not be guaranteed, hence its importance.

Days out for the underprivileged and those with special needs are extremely rewarding and a wonderful experience, especially for children. Ffinding activities that are accessible can be a real challenge in Cambodia. Our project will be built totally wheelchair accessible and will include disabled toilets. Our project will be planned to ensure the day goes smoothly for EVERYONE !!! Leisure activities are a terrific learning and development opportunity for children with learning disabilities. Motivating for our disabled children experiencing new surroundings. Our Project will be offering at least one day a month free access for the underprivileged and handicapped and other days for Government schools. These days are great opportunities for volunteers to assist in showing kids around and also to undertake maintenance on some exhibits
Many species today are more endangered then they where 20 - 50 years ago. However, this is not the fault of the wildlife trade, as this is minimal. It is other activities that have resulted in the decline of fauna. Such as, uncontrolled hunting, habitat destruction of farmland, timber milling and by burning big forest areas. A big problem in Africa right now that receives little or no publicity is Portuguese "Tourist Hunters" who will shoot thousands of birds in the morning, just for fun. However, the biggest problem is the fast growing human population in tropical counties and the need for more living space. Yes, these activities are having serious effects on the native fauna. The Self made fauna protectors or Green activists only show concern that a few species are kept by zoos, who are persecuted because they are a minority, and easy high profile victims for these activists to attract attention to themselves and their drive for donations. It is however these private keepers who really do care for these animals and do a lot for the protection and future conservation.Green activists The result of activists will see more and more restrictions to the trade in wild taken species, some of which will die out altogether with their natural habitat. The only solution to this is the breeding of such species in facilities such as we are proposing.
With its exciting River side access, getting to PP Zoo and water park is easy and fun; access by road or on the river on our proposed paddle wheel steamer operating from River side to the park.
