Delhi Zoo

Located against the magical backdrop of the Purana Qila, National Zoological Park (NZP) was envisioned by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru. Major Weinman of Colombo and Carl Hagenbeck of West Germany were the designers of NZP that was opened in 1959 to the public.

Its 176-acre expanse has manicured lawns, expansive animal enclosures, thick woodlands interspersed with brooks and lakes, and a thriving populations of migratory birds. Every year more than 13,00,000 people visit the Delhi Zoo that houses more than 1200 birds, mammals and reptiles.

The logo of Delhi Zoo is the Manipur Brow-antlered deer, highly rare and endangered species. The Manipur subspecies is confined to the valley of Manipur. In 1962, Delhi Zoo received a pair of these deer from as a gift from the then Manipur State. Between 1963 and 1976, 36 births had been recorded. Encouraged by this success, it was decided to set up more breeding zones for these deer. Hence from Delhi Zoo, herd were distributed on a sale or barter basis to zoos at Ahmedabad, Kanpur, Lucknow, Hyderabad, Junagarh and Mysore. To everybody’s surprise, the deer adjusted to atmospheric conditions everywhere.

This is the right website for anyone who wishes to find
out about this topic. You understand a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that
I really will need to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new
spin on a subject that has been written about for many years.
Excellent stuff, just excellent!

Did you know that the Delhi zoo was designed by architect Habib Rahman? Weinman of Colombo and Carl Hagenbeck of West Germany were consultants. Rahman worked closely with Jawaharlal Nehru in keeping to a design that kept the animals in as natural a state and surroundings as possible. It was beautiful and wild when it first opened in the late 1950s. It is now in a pathetic state. How sad.
