Pyongyang, January 18 (KCNA) -- The Central Zoo is at the foot of Mt Taesong in Pyongyang, the capital city of the DPRK. Its total area is over 100 hectares.

More than 200 animals of 60-odd kinds at the zoo dropped their young last year.

The zoo, built on the initiative of President Kim Il Sung , is associated with patriotic devotion of Chairman Kim Jong Il for the people.

The Chairman mapped out a plan to turn it into a world-level zoo and visited it tens of times to give precious teachings. He sent an animal favored by him to the zoo and taught scientific breeding and caring methods and took a measure for supplying feed.

In spite of severe cold in January Juche 100 (2011), the last year of his great life, he visited the zoo and went round the newly built veterinary hospital, aquarium, animal stunt hutch and other places to acquaint himself with the operation of the zoo in detail. And he gave important teachings on sprucing up the zoo in a far-sighted way, including the issues of increasing the kinds of animals, laying a solid material and technical foundation of the zoo, improving its operation and putting the breeding of animals on a scientific basis.

When visiting the zoo again in July that year, he said that it is the pride of the people to have the modernly built large-scale zoo, and gave tasks that would serve as a guideline for its operation.

Today, the Central Zoo has been turned into a world-level base for cultural and emotional life and education under the wise leadership of the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un . -0-
