As part of a research carried out by Michal Zaitzove-Raz and Or Komai, supervised by Prof. Tamar Dayan, five Buxton's jirds were brought to the Zoological Garden – three females and two males.

Next to the eastern path of the garden, whose renovation is nearly complete, a new turtle pond has been built. The location of the pond was chosen in order to enhance accessibility to the turtles, which until now were not within the main exhibit areas, and to add content and interest to the path area.

Shosha, the female wolf who returned to us after living for several years in the Abu-Kabir Zoological Garden, unfortunately has failed to establish her place in the pack.
