Bahadurpura: A new aviary is being erected with large enclosures at the Parrot World for the display of various types of Macaws, parrots, parakeets, Budgerigar, love birds, Cockatoos and other birds at Nehru Zoological Park. The foundation stone for this was laid by Prashanth Kumar Jha, Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (Head of Forest Force) & Wildlife Warden, on Thursday.
According to officials, as the existing aviary has become quite old, as per the approved master plan of the zoo the authorities have decided to come up with the new aviary. Prashanth Kumar Jha released a pair of giraffes into the enclosure for the public display.
These giraffes were brought from Kolkata zoo on animal exchange programme and were kept in quarantine ever since. The giraffes, Sunny and Bubbly, are aged about 4 and 2 years respectively and are in good health. They have acclimatised to their new habitat. The presence of three giraffes in the zoo is a feast to the eyes of the visitors.
Later, the PCCF (HoFF) & Wildlife Warden along with higher officials went round the zoo and expressed satisfaction over the maintenance of such a large zoo. He congratulated all the officers and staff of the zoo for putting their efforts for development of it in all the aspects. He noted that they were taking good care of the wild animals and bringing good repute to the zoo.
The official was accompanied by Prudhvi Raj, PCCF, T S, Munindra, Additional Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (Wildlife and Admin), Shobha Dobrial, Swargam Srinivas, Additional Principal Chief Conservators of Forests, Dr Sidhanand Kukretty, Director of Zoo Parks, N Kshitija, Curator, Nehru Park, and others.
