Australia will send 58 rare animals to Thailand this month after receiving eight elephants from Thailand under an exchange programme.

Zoological Park Organization director Sopon Damnui (โสภณ ดำนุ้ย) said the animals from Australia include koalas, red kangaroos, great grey kangaroos, wallabies, dingoes and emus.

Mr. Sopon said two koalas and two red pandas will be kept at Dusit Zoo in Bangkok and the rest will be sent to Night Safari in Chiang Mai.

He said the delivery of koalas, which are strongly protected in Australia, to Thailand means Australia trusts in the standard of Thai zoos.
