Kankaria, India's first nocturnal zoo, records over Rs 3 crore yearly income. The two-floor zoo is designed to create a night-like environment in the day time and vice versa.
"Total investment on this zoo was Rs 17 crore and we get around Rs 3.6 crore annual return a year," said its director RK Sahu.
It was built in 2017, keeping nocturnal animals such as Hedgehog, Jungle cat, and Striped Hyena, who are active in dark.
It has got a geothermal system for aeration, introduced first time in India for animals as well as visitors. It is also provided with a special lighting system to give it a night-like look, said Mr Sahu.
The whole property is designed in a way to give it a jungle-like texture also. Public response to the initiative is very good, he said.
