David Field said: "The rent for two pandas in the UK is £1 million per year. Due to the impact of the new crown epidemic, Edinburgh Zoo and Highland Wildlife Park were forced to close for three months. This has caused a huge impact on our charity. Because our main income comes from our tourists. Although the zoo is now reopening, we have lost approximately £2 million last year."
Field said that Edinburgh Zoo must seriously consider every potential cost-saving possibility, which also includes the lease contracts of two giant pandas "Sweet" and "Sunshine".
This is a sensational news for British tourists. Netizens said they were heartbroken after hearing it.
