Capacity building of zoo personnel

Without motivated & trained staff, no zoo can provide appropriate care to the animals in its collection. Animal keepers are therefore deputed every year for training programmes organized by the Central Zoo Authority.

Other than the keeper training, the zoo has been deputing its officers for training in other Indian zoos and zoos aboard. In-house meetings are regularly conducted to apprise the zoo staff of new developments taking place in different zoos in India and abroad. Team building exercise are also organised to develop cooperation among all zoo staff and officers.
