68th Wildlife Week: Children learn and participate in fun activities at Vizag Zoo

Visakhapatnam: From drawing what they know about wildlife to learning new things about wild animals, it was a fun week for the kids who took part in the 68th Wildlife Week celebrations held at the Indira Gandhi Zoological Park in Visakhapatnam.

The week-long celebration at the zoo was lively and colorful, with children having fun interacting with zoo staff and keepers and participating in fun competitions and activities.

This year, the 68th Wildlife Week was celebrated under the theme “Recovering Key Species for Ecosystem Restoration – LIFE (Lifestyle for the Environment)” and the P3 (Pro-Planet People) movement. As part of the Wildlife Week celebrations, three short documentaries were aired on sea turtles, the IGZP animal adoption program, Visakhapatnam and IGZP wildlife.

The whole week saw exciting sessions hosted by zoo officials. The children wandered around the zoo and spotted many species of birds. They learned new facts about the birds and captured them with their cameras. Many contests and programs were held including bird watching, drawing, debate, photography, butterfly conservation workshops and webinars.

“These activities teach children about wildlife and how to protect the environment. During the week, children learned interesting facts about wild animals and zoo species,” said the IGZP curator, Dr. Nandani Salaria.

“We are trying to bring in new species of animals from Indian zoos as well as foreign zoos like the Czech Republic and Sri Lanka. A Memorandum of Understanding with the Italian zoo has been signed under the Sister Zoo Concept to have an exchange of technical knowledge between zoos on best practices,” she added.
