I am pleased to welcome you to our website. In Patna, Sanjay Gandhi Biological Park is a place of attraction for visitors, and it is only Zoo of Bihar. It is commonly known as 'Patna Chiriyagarh' or 'Patna Zoo'.

There are 108 different species of wild animals found in Sanjay Gandhi Biological Park, out of which 50 species are under endangered category. Total number of animals and birds in Patna Zoo is1322.

On an average 20-25 lakh visitors visit this Zoo every year and there is a significant increase in no. of visitors in last few years.

Patna Zoo is world famous for its one horned rhinoceros conservation breeding. At present conservation breeding at Sanjay Gandhi Biological Park is successful in tiger, lion, hyena, etc. also.

The botanical section of this Biological Park includes Aquatic Park, Medicinal Nursery, Fern House, Green House, etc. Aquarium, Aviary, Children Park and Boating facility is an added attraction for visitors.

Zoo administration is fully dedicated for better health and nutrition of all the wild animals. In general public utility facilities like Toilet, Canteen, Drinking water facilities, etc. are good but there is an ample scope for improvement.

Animal Adoption Scheme is going on in the Sanjay Gandhi Biological Park and I appeal on behalf of Patna Zoo to come forward for this Scheme.

Since there is always a scope for continuous improvement in the journey towards excellence, your valuable suggestions are solicited.
