In response to the escalating temperatures affecting both humans and wildlife alike, Sajjangarh Sanctuary Biological Park has implemented significant changes in the diet and living conditions of its animals. With the aim to mitigate the adverse effects of heat on wildlife, the park authorities have initiated several proactive measures.

Dr. Hans Kumar Jain, a wildlife veterinarian at the Biological Park, has announced the forthcoming alterations set to take effect from April 1, 2024. These changes primarily revolve around modifying the dietary regimens of the park's diverse wildlife population.

Notably, the traditional practice of providing eggs to bears during colder months has been discontinued due to the exacerbating heat. Instead, alternative nourishments such as honey, porridge, and watermelon have been introduced, offering the bears much-needed relief from heat conditions.

Furthermore, as a preventive measure against heat-related ailments, the park administration is set to install protective nets within animal enclosures. These nets aim to shield the wildlife from direct exposure to the scorching sun, thereby ensuring their well-being during the peak of summer.

Specific provisions have been made for predators like lions and hyenas, with plans to equip their enclosures with fans and coolers. Additionally, the implementation of grass barriers around the enclosures aims to mitigate the impact of hot air currents, reducing the risk of heatstroke among the carnivores.
