Remarks 1.The Zoo feels the need of some CCTV cameras at strategic locations both for animal management and security purposes. This is a genuine requirement and support may be provided for the same. 2.Tiger enclosures should have large open air kraals with mud substrates. 3.The nocturnal house should be made rodent proof. 4. i)As the sewerage of the zoo is being disposed off outside without any treatment, a treatment plant should be set up and treated water should be used for gardening etc. (ii) The Zoo should have a proper storage tank for water supply as it is presently dependent on bore wells directly pumping out the water. This a situation that requires immediate attention.

M. equipment and arrangement for its storage. 6.This is the only zoo with the good record of breeding of Sarus crane. Though, this is not one of the identified species of CZA, this should be included and zoo should develop off display breeding facilities for the species in a big way in a scientific manner in collaboration with institutions like International Crane Foundation.
