Countdown of Canceling Animal Acrobatic Performances in Hangzhou 2018-05-02
By the end of this year, animal acrobatics will no longer be performed in Hangzhou Zoo. According to the National Program for the Development of Zoos, issued in 2013, all kinds of land animal performances should be eliminated.

Since June 1996, Hangzhou zoo’s acrobatic pavilion has been the center stage for a number of animals. Performing four times a day, from Monday-Friday and additionally at weekends and holidays, tigers jumping through hoops, black bears cycling, monkeys fetching water and elephants playing the harmonica, soon, will no longer be in the Hangzhou spotlight.

Hangzhou is the first city to put an end to such roaring performances and whilst some spectators will be sad to see these animals leave their existing roles, for others this is the 21st century and they will be looking forward to seeing what the new pavilion will bring.

The existing acrobatic pavilion in Hangzhou zoo will soon be upgraded and transformed into a lively platform where magic shows and acrobatics will be performed by artists and not animals. Children will be able to engage in drama, art and science whilst at the same time learning about the wild and wonderful creatures that reside in this zoo.
