Abhirup Das the Head of New Business Verticals of Esselworld Leisure Pvt. Ltd. says, “We wanted to ensure that the birds lived in their natural habitat and hence set-up the bird park in a non-polluted zone. The 50ft-tall mesh enclosure lets birds fly freely without them escaping. A dedicated kitchen prepares meals for each species. Our handlers are trained by experienced bird behaviorists from Spain. We also have a panel of avian and exotic specialists as vets.”
