Nandankanan Zoological Park Opens for Public after 19 Days


Bhubaneswar: The Nandankanan Zoological Park (NZP) that was ravaged by Cyclone Fani, was opened for public on today.

It should be noted that the NZP authorities had declared the closure of zoo for an indefinite period after the cyclonic storm left a trail of devastation here on May 3.

The green cover in the zoo was badly affected, which uprooted thousands of trees in the zoo and other medicinal plants in the adjoined Botanical Garden.

As many as 213 enclosures built for the animals at the zoo were also damaged by the cyclone.
