The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation
(BMC) decided to offer entry tickets online due to a large number of tourists at VirJijamata Bhosale Udyan and Zoo in order to minimise disruption to guests. Visitors were forced to wait in line for hours at the ticket office, it was observed. The website link https://themumbaizoo-ticket.mcgm.gov.in/ now allows citizens to purchase tickets. Dr. Sanjiv Kumar, Additional Municipal Commissioner (AMC), launched the online system on Friday afternoon. Flash, Bingo, and Alexa are the names of three penguin babies that were just hatched in this area.
The 160th anniversary of Jijamata Udyan, also known as Victoria Garden, was commemorated by BMC on Friday. The garden has been used to celebrate a variety of events. The 160th-anniversary logo and inviting guest seating have both been unveiled by Dr. Kumar. Videos produced by the zoo's administration were posted on the YouTube account for "The Mumbai Zoo." On Friday, books containing information on the Zoo were officially launched.
The Byculla Zoo's grounds will soon have plastic bottle crusher machines installed by BMC. Under the Company's Social Responsibility (CSR) programme, the machines are being installed. A trio of Humboldt penguin chicks was just born in the zoo. On April 2, 2022, a chicken named Flash (Male) was born. Alexa was born on August 9, 2022, and Bingo (a male) was born on April 26, 2022.
