Nawab Wajid Ali Shah Zoological Garden, widely famed as the Lucknow Zoo has initiated a new scheme for wildlife lovers. As per reports, visitors at the animal shelter can now fund one-time meals for bigger cats like lions, tigers and leopards. Besides benefiting the animals, this new project comes as a treat for the zoophilist. Reportedly, the name of the benefactors will be displayed on the LED screen placed close to the ticket counter.


A scheme by the Department of Environment, Forests & Climate Change(EFCC)

Aimed at promoting public engagement at the zoo, the program has been formulated by the Department of Environment, Forests and Climate Change(EFCC). As per reports, the zoo authorities expect that kids will be overjoyed by this initiative and they would definitely like to participate in the activity. Given that they constitute a significant proportion of the total footfalls, it can be said that the scheme would take off well in the days to come.

Reportedly, the EFCC officials have found out the daily cost of meals for a tiger. As per reports, the authorities have informed that the cost of a one-time meal for a tiger and a lion costs ₹2,400 each. Besides, a leopard is fed through a sum of ₹800.

Adoption schemes help the zoo in raising funds

During the last year, the pandemic-induced lockdown severely affected the income of the zoo. It was only due to the adoption scheme executed recently that the zoo has been able to raise funds for its functioning. This scheme was marked by considerable participation by individuals, organisations and institutes. Now, the latest project will help animal lovers with varied financial capabilities to contribute their bit for the mightiest inhabitants at the zoo.
