According to Mayor of Lop Buri in Thailand, Lop Buri Monkey Zoo municipality plans to ask for 26 million baht from the government to improve the zoo.

He said that maintenance is required to improve the facility, such as the building of separate cages to house monkeys captured in different locations, to prevent them fighting with each other. And, the shelter can currently only accommodate 800 monkeys.

The mayor said that a memorandum of understanding was signed in February, between the Nationals Park Department and the municipality, to fast-track the relocation plan with equipment and manpower support from the department.
