The Tirupati Wildlife Management Circle and Sri Venkateswara Zoological Park will be jointly organising the ‘59th Wildlife Week’ from October 2 to 8. Entry into the zoo is free for children during the week.

The programme is conducted annually on Gandhi Jayanti to create awareness among people on the importance of forests and its flora and fauna. The zoo will conduct competitions for children in essay-writing, elocution, quiz, fancy dress and painting.
