In recent days, the Deputy Mayor has stated that the Council will be undertaking a Business Case to bring (real) Pandas to Wellington Zoo.
While the costs of this are unknown as yet, we believe that the Council should also consider Robotic Pandas as part of that Business Case.
Wellington City Council is carrying out a Business Case to understand the benefits or otherwise of bringing Pandas to the Wellington Zoo.
We believe that Robotic Pandas should be included as an option in that Business Case. Robotic Pandas may prove to be cheaper to construct, while cheaper to maintain, and will add to the allure of Wellington's High Tech Capital.
