Located at Wumei Mountain, Zhangwan Street, Caidian District, the first phase of Wuhan Animal Kingdom will open for trial operation at the end of this year.

Construction of the project will be divided into two phases, covering a land area of 1.5 square kilometers and a water area of five square kilometers. The total investment will amount to RMB 1.5 billion.

It is planned that the zoo will be home to more than 35,000 animals, which cover about 380 rare species. Visitors will be able to see wildlife under first-or-second-level state protection, such as pandas, red pandas, Siberian tigers, and golden monkeys, and imported African wild animals like giraffes, zebras, rhinoceroses, cheetahs, and lions.

Inside the Animal Kingdom, a giant net house for birds will be built, covering an area of 60,000 square meters. Hanging 60 meters high above the ground, it will be the largest net house for birds nationwide.

The Animal Kingdom will also build an aquarium for Yangtze River fish and a greenhouse botanical garden. A scenic forest theater will be built as well and used for large-scale performances.
