Ticket rates set to go up at Chennai’s Vandalur zoo, Guindy park.

Ticket rates are set to go up at the Arignar Anna Zoological Park (AAZP) in Vandalur near Chennai and a few other zoos in Tamil Nadu as the government tries to create additional facilities for visitors and ensure better care for the animals.

In a statement Monday, Supriya Sahu, Additional Chief Secretary of the Environment, Forests and Climate Change Department, said it has become essential to revise the visitor fees at zoos “considering the need to improve facilities for zoo animals and visitors.”

Other zoos that will see a hike in visitor fees are Guindy Children’s Park in Chennai, which is a medium-category zoo, besides small-category ones like Kurumbapatti Zoological Park in Salem and Amirthi Zoo in Vellore.
