Visakhapatnam Zoo organises five day program for Big Butterfly Month  

The Indira Gandhi Zoological Park (IGZP) in Visakhapatnam is organising a series of programs to celebrate the occasion of Big Butterfly Month from 14 September to 18 September 2022.  

Big Butterfly Month is the celebration of the existence of butterflies and is celebrated by various organisations. Observed every year in the month of September, the main objective is aimed to conduct a scientific survey to help us examine the health of the environment. In line with this agenda, the Visakhapatnam Zoo has organised a five-day program to bring awareness on what kind of plants butterflies rely on for food and shelter, management of butterfly gardens, conservation of butterflies, and how to make a house for butterflies.


Butterflies play a major role in the conservation of the environment around us and hence it is important to bring awareness about its conservation, especially among children and the younger generation, opined the IGZP Zoo Curator, Nandani Salaria, IFS.
