Sanitation and Upkeep


All animal enclosures are cleaned on daily basis.

Weeds removal, bush cutting to reduce the vector load, cleaning of moats and sewer lines and proper disposal of solid wastes are important measures adopted by the Nainital Zoo for improving the hygiene of animal enclosures.

Night shelters of animals are washed daily with lizol and weekly with bleaching powder.

Food supplied to the animals is procured as per the guide lines determined by CZA to ensure that wholesome and quality feed is being supplied to the animals.

The authority ensures that meet provided to the carnivores and other is duly certified by the zoo veterinarian.
