Tata Zoo was opened for visitors on 3rd March, 1994 - the foundation day of Tata Steel. The zoo is spread over an area of 37 hectares interspersed with wooded area and manicured lawns and gardens.

The main objective for creating a zoo in Jamshedpur was:

  • To provide a place for recreation, education, research, conservation and captive breeding of birds, animals, reptiles, aquatic animals etc.

  • To create a natural environment for birds, animals and other creatures where they can live in simulated natural conditions and without any fear for their lives.
