Include Robot Pandas in Wellington City Council Panda Business Case
The Wellington City Council is writing a business case to investigate the costs and benefits of renting Panda's from China. The cost of this is likely to be very high. We believe that one of the options in that Business Case should be to commission the building of Robotic Pandas against the option of renting real Pandas.
The cost is likely to be lower, it reflects our high-tech city, it will not exploit endangered animals, and is likely to attract just as many tourists.
