A mobile app will be launched by the end of March

The Lahore Zoo is being digitally renovated to improve the experience of families and become a learning platform for children.

The project is being led by Dr Suleman Shahid, an assistant professor at Lahore University of Management Sciences' computer science department. He is collaborating with a multinational company.

The 'Lahore Zoo Mobile App' is being launched to provide information about animals, specifically about what they eat and where they are brought from. According to the Lums website, it is being developed by the Computer Human Interaction and Social Experience Lab (CHISEL) at Lums.

The app will include interactive games to educate children about animals and allow them to relate to information in their textbooks. “The purpose of the app is to facilitate visitors so that they can learn something from their experience, along with being entertained,” says Dr Suleman.

The zoo is spread over 25 acres. To facilitate the visitors, a detailed map of the zoo will be included in the app which will provide a reader QR codes on the information boards at the zoo.

The app will address the low adoption rate in the zoo by providing information about the animals up for adoption and the finances needed to take care of them.

"It is an effective way through which people would know that animals are a part of our society,” said Punjab Wildlife Deputy Director Naeem Bhatti.

The zoo will be digitally modified by the end of March.
