As many as 214 new-born Alexandrine parakeets rescued from smugglers in Srikakulam a few days ago are being lodged at the Indira Gandhi Zoological Park on court orders to make them fit for release into the wild.

After foiling an attempt to smuggle them from a gang near Palakonda, the Srikakulam Police handed them over to the Forest Department. “On court orders, they were shifted to the zoo on Friday night. We hope with utmost care by zoo officials, the new-borns will get the ability to feed on their own and fly,” Divisional Forest Officer-Srikakulam B. Vijay Kumar, told The Hindu on Saturday.
