Mumbai: The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has proposed the appointment of a dedicated private contractor as caretaker of the Humboldt penguins and their enclosure at Byculla zoo (Veermata Jijabai Udyan). The appointed contractor will have to provide technical staff to maintain life support systems, air conditioning systems of the enclosure, provide good food to the penguins and extra veterinarians to look after them.
Mumbai: After welcoming its newest inhabitant, a baby Humboldt penguin, on August 15, the Veermata Jijabai Udyan (Byculla Zoo) has now decided to preserve the egg shell and CCTV footage for documentation and research. Sanjay Tripathi, veterinary doctor and zoo in-charge, said, “The egg shell fragments have been kept in the zoo centre and will be preserved. We also plan to put the shell on public display. The matter is pending discussion.”
Mumbai: India’s first-ever Humboldt Penguin was born on Wednesday night at Veermata Jijabai Udyan while India was celebrating its Independence Day. Sanjay Tripathi, veterinary doctor and in-charge of the zoo, told the Free Press Journal that the new-born baby penguin’s health is good and that it is being taken care of by Mr Molt and Flipper (the father and mother penguin) and the doctors.
Mumbai: The BMC, in its Budget, has proposed expansion of Veermata Jijabai Udyan and zoo, also popularly known as the Byculla zoo, on a seven acre plot received as an amenity from the Mafatlal Mill Compound. However, the said plot is still embroiled in litigation in the Bombay High Court and the verdict is awaited.
