Hyderabad | 5th June 2021
On the occasion of World Environment Day today, the Nehru Zoological Park shared some happy news about its inmates.

The zoo announced the birth of a one-horned rhinoceros and a gaur.

A male gaur calf was born on June 2. He has been named Komaram Bheem by Principal Chief Conservator of Forest R Sobha.

The rhino calf, named Nanda, is now a fortnight old.

Speaking on the matter, Sobha said that the zoo was at the forefront of the conservation and breeding of wild animals, and that the recent births of endangered mega-herbivores were worth cheering in an otherwise gloomy pandemic scenario.

On the occasion, she expressed her appreciation for the tireless hard work and dedication of the zoo staff, and lauded them for working towards the conservation of wildlife even through such hard times.

For World Environment Day, the staff also organised a planting program within its premises where native wild species, especially wild fruit-bearing trees, were planted to improve the biodiversity of the famed zoo. The program was part of a larger effort to move towards realising a "long-cherished goal" of making the zoo a centre for both the education and conservation of fauna and flora.

The wild fruit trees, apart from increasing the floral composition, would invite free-ranging frugivorous birds and small mammals and would therefore also improve faunal diversity.
