|Nehru Zoological Park|
Our major tasks include:
- Breeding and rehabilitating endangered animals while nurturing their relationship with the fauna of the Deccan plateau.
- Conducting educational programs to raise public awareness for the protection of wildlife.
- Conducting research on wildlife for conservation and management.
From a bird's eye view, the zoo premises appear like an oasis amidst a desert of concrete. We strive to maintain and improve the lush green gardens, lawns, and groves so you can observe the animals in their natural habitat. We have enhanced the animal enclosures with indigenous plant materials to simulate natural conditions. The two hundred year old Miralam Tank lake with its unique multiple arched bund attracts hundreds of migratory birds. If you hop on our popular boat ride, you will get a chance to enjoy the view of the scenic landscape from a wider angle. The zoo attracts an average of 15 lakh (1.5 million) visitors annually.
Wildlife education is our primary objective. We try to ensure that the animals are well-provided for in their natural settings and habitats. Display boards with exhibit details in multiple languages are conveniently located at each exhibit. Over a period of time, the zoo personnel have achieved expertise in animal handling, breeding of endangered animals, capturing of wild animals, and treatment of injured animals at the zoo and in the wild. The zoo is also involved in the education and training of personnel from newly established zoos. Our trained guides organise and conduct educational sessions for visiting groups from schools. Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) like the 'Friends of Snakes' Society also conduct educational programs at our facility.
