It's a pleasure to be part of one of Nainital's timeless institutions: “the Nainital Zoo”. I have great respect for the Zoo's leadership in exhibitry, wildlife management, education, scientific research and conservation. You will find the Zoo's staff and volunteers are dedicated to the care of its inmates as well as to making your visit a memorable one. That's because we value the traditions that have made thiszoo a world-class, the rich diversity that makes Nainital Zoo today, and the teamwork that will bring the Zoo to new heights for the future in wildlife conservation, wildlife rehabilitaion, scientific management, education, recreation and entertainment, leaving no carbon footprints back.
The “Himalyan Botanical Garden” at charkhet (04 kms from Nainital) is a part of Nainital zoo, it harbours vide variety of faunal and floral communities. The staff present over, has made this place an open nature lab for education- awareness and scientific management.
