Reliance Industries Limited is all set to build one of the biggest zoos in the world in terms of number and species of animals at one place in Jamnagar in Gujarat. A state government official confirmed on Friday that the zoo was being developed by RIL which operates a refinery in Jamnagar. Permission has been granted by both the central and state governments. After getting approval from both the governments, RIL will start working on this project on 280 acres of land.
MK Das, Additional Chief Secretary in the Chief Minister’s office, made the announcement while making a presentation on Gujarat at a virtual conference under ‘ASSOCHAM Foundation Week 2020’. “As we all know the world’s tallest statue is in Gujarat (Statue of Unity in Kevadiya). Now, one of the world’s biggest zoos, in terms of number and species of animals at one place, is coming up very shortly in Jamnagar,” Das said.
