Elaborate arrangements have been made by Wild Animal Conservation Centre of Sambalpur to protect the animals from the searing heat.

In view of the soaring temperature, the authorities here have already made summer sheds for the animals and birds. Straw has been placed over the roof of the sheds.

Apart from this, the authorities have also started sprinkling water to make the animals feel cool. Sack and green net are also being used. The concrete floors of the enclosures are being washed twice a day.

“Watermelon, sugarcane and papaya are being served to the herbivorous animals to prevent heat-related stress among them,” said Range Officer of the Wild Animal Conservation Center, Madanlal Sharma.

Apart from making arrangements for wild animals, the authorities have also taken steps for the visitors also. “Despite the scorching heat, hundreds of visitors are regularly visiting this place,” said Sharma.

The center, which is located in the heart of Sambalpur city, was established in 1980 and has already achieved the status of a small zoo. It houses 17 wild life species and the number of birds and animals in the zoo now is 247.
