Please Adopt An Animal in Bannerghatta Biological Park

Bannerghatta Biological Park - Request to  adopt Animals

Bengaluru. June 7, (Karnataka Information) : Bannerghatta Biological Park (BBP) has 4 different units such as Zoo, Safari, Butterfly Park and Rescue Center created within the area of 731.88 Ha. BBP was a self sustained organization which was run only by gate revenue and we have also adopted a few mini zoos of Karnataka.

COVID-19 pandemic has played a great disaster on the zoo where the footfall has come down drastically, which has impacted revenue of zoo. In spite of this, the zoo is taking care of around 2388 individual animals belonging to 102 different species. So we request citizens  and organizations to  adopt animals to contribute towards their partial cost of feed and veterinary care

BBP also provides an opportunity to adopt and name young ones which currently do not have names. Some of the young ones available for adoption and naming are as follows:

1) Lioness Sania's 1 male & 3 female cubs born on 3rd April, 2021

2) Cubs  Zebra Kaveri’s female foal born on 27th September,2020
