Zoos across West Bengal to reopen on Oct 2, National parks and tourism centres to be operational from Sept 23

Kolkata, Sep 18 (UNI) Zoos across West Bengal, including the Alipur Zoo in the city, will reopen on October 2, coinciding with the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, according to State Forest Minister Rajib Banerjee.
Forests usually close down for two months every monsoon – from July 15 to September 15, but this year, forest areas have remained closed for far longer than that in order to contain the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ahead of Durga Puja, this is good news for tourists as well as for those who run establishments around the forest areas. Prolonged closure of hotels in tourist destinations has led to huge losses for businesses.
