Topic: The cost of feeding primates, lions, crocodiles, and various other creatures calculated by the Hunter Valley Zoo is high.
No wonder yesterday's government funding news relieved people in the Hunter Valley Zoo.
At present, many companies are imposing COVID-19 restrictions to deal with these difficulties. However, in order to survive the blockade, some companies will face unique challenges.
Jason Pearson, head of the Hunter Valley Zoo, told the subject that his business costs have not changed, but the coronavirus means it is no longer the only source of income.
Animals still need to be fed, and veterinary fees must also be paid, all electricity costs added together.
On Monday afternoon, Jason told the topic from a car carrying a few birds and kangaroos: "I don't even want to think about how good these holidays will be if we can start a company." Not a major income requirement. "
Jason said that in addition to making an employee plan (which means he has the ability to retain employees), the federal government ’s subsidy plan for zoos will also cover food, health care and other welfare expenses for six months, which is good news.
He told The Theme that 30 primates in the zoo consume $ 1,000 worth of fruits and vegetables per week (they eat quality products on the market, which is the kind we can find on the table), And spent the same money to feed four lions to eat red meat. Not to mention attracting other crowds at Nurqaba Zoo.
Jason said: "The weekly food bill is within thousands of dollars."
"We can close the door, but we cannot eliminate our operating costs. All animals must be taken care of."
At the same time, these animals seem to have noticed a shortage of tourists in recent weeks.
Jason said: "In our aviary, kangaroo yard and farm yard, when the breeders entered, they were besieged."
"Those animals are used to raising multiple people here every day, attract their attention and pat."
