[ edit] History The zoo is located at the foot of Mandalay Hill and was established in 1989. The zoo is opened on 8th April 1989. In 2003, its facilities were upgraded for K500 million. [1 ] Part of the upgrade program included a dedicated K. trivittata enclosure with a larger ground pond, built with emergency funds donated by BTG Studios of Sydney and Allwetterzoo Münster of Germany. [4 ] [ edit] K. trivittata Yadanabon Zoo is notable for having the five of these turtles, out of a worldwide known population of eight. These five include one adult male, two adult females, and a juvenile male and female. According to Gerald Kuchling, Of the world's top 25 most endangered turtles (TCF, 2003), this species is arguably in the top two that most desperately need a captive assurance colony in order to survive. [4 ] The Turtle Survival Alliance is working closely with the zoo to help care for the turtles, as well as a breeding program for Burmese Star Tortoises ( G. platynota).
