In order to ensure no change in their behavioural pattern, sprinklers have been installed near the resting places of bears and tigers.
"We have provided coolers in the animal enclosures and traditional khas khas (hay) curtains have also been installed. This helps the animal cool off," said Director, Van Vihar National Park, Sunita Rajaura.
"Shades have been constructed near the water bodies to help the animals avoid the extreme heat," she added.
