New Delhi: Delhi is likely to get its first wild animal rescue centre by the end of the year, Forest department officials said on Wednesday.
The facility will come up on a 1.24-acre plot in Rajokri where a monkey rescue centre is lying abandoned, they said.
The animal rescue centre will come up in place of a proposed facility for birds.
Approval of the Ridge Management Board was needed to "broaden" the proposal of a wild bird rescue centre to a wild animal rescue centre.
The wild animal rescue centre will also be used for treating birds, he said.
