Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) will be setting up the world’s largest zoo in Gujarat’s Jamnagar district.

The zoo is said to be the pet project of Anant Ambani, the youngest son of RIL Chairman Mukesh Ambani. It will also be a part of the company’s CSR activities to help the Gujarat Forest department in sheltering those big cats which have been injured and rescued. The developers hope it will materialize in two years.

The Greens Zoological Rescue and the Rehabilitation Kingdom will have around 100 different species of birds, reptiles, and animals from all over the world. There will be sloth bears, komodo dragons, Indian wolves, rosy pelicans, fishing cats, barking deer, slender Lori’s among others.

“As we have the world’s tallest statue in Gujarat (the Statue of Unity at Kevadia), soon we will be having one of the world’s biggest zoos, in terms of number and species of animals at one place. Such zoo is coming up very shortly in Jamnagar,” M.K. Das, Additional Chief Secretary (ACS) to the Chief Minister Vijay Rupani said at a virtual conference, marking the foundation week of ASSOCHAM, last month. (IANS)
