Delhi Zoo introduces plan to keep animals active
July 30, 2014

Swings for chimpanzees, wooden logs in the elephant enclosures, artificial nests for free-living birds and food baskets for deer species are some of the measures Delhi Zoo authorities have taken to make keep their animals active.

In addition to giving a new look to the attraction, the Zoo's plan is to make the premises friendlier for animals and birds. Already it has included the refurbishment of the enclosures of various species like the Chowsingha, Barasingha, Sambar deer and spotted deer.

Zoo Curator Riyaz Khan told local media "food baskets have already been installed in several deer enclosures (and) we are also moving logs of wood in bear and elephant enclosures for recreational purposes. 

"Ropes are being tied and made into swings for chimpanzees and gibbons." 

The National Zoological Park/Delhi Zoo occupies a 71 hectare site zoo near the Old Fort in Delhi, India. Featuring a 16th-century citadel, the Zoo is home to about 1,350 animals representing almost 130 species of animals and birds from around the world.
