Bhitarkanika reopens today after 3 month closure for croc breeding

Bhitarkanika National Park in Kendrapara reopens for visitors on August 1 after remaining off limits for crocodile breeding season.

According to the reports, the Forest department has put all arrangements in place to welcome back tourists after such a long time. Rajnagar DFO Yagnadatt Pati said efforts have been made to ensure that the national park remains plastic-free.

Further, the visitor gathering places like crocodile nurseries, selfie points, restaurants, battery-operated boats, cottages for lodging and museum have been prepared for visitors.

Tourists interested to visit the national park can do so on a water route from Gupti, Khola and Chandbali. People can also board vehicles to enter the national park through the main gate from Dangamal on the land route.

The park authorities have urged people to ensure mask-wearing and other Covid guidelines with strictness. Bhitarkanika National Park was shut down from May 1 to July 31 to make way for crocodiles to lay eggs.
