Shanghai Zoo to recreate an East China wetland

It will be home for animals and birds, including otters, hooded cranes, badgers, muntjacs, raccoon dogs, and river deer.

Shanghai Zoo plans to open a new display area of animals native to East China in the second half of next year.

The zoo is upgrading its small mammal display area to  house a number of animals and birds, including otters, hooded cranes, badgers, muntjacs, raccoon dogs, and river deer.

The area will be converted into an environment of East China wetland, and will be divided into five areas.

Construction to upgrade the mammal area began this month, and all the animals have been moved. The dismantling work will start soon and the whole construction is expected to be finished within nine months.

The rebuilt area will cover over 30,000 square meters,  incorporating a boardwalk, a bird watching pavilion and bridges.
