In an effort to promote the preservation of wildlife, Thepukhoyi Kezo a lecturer of Agape College, Padumpukhuri, donated a Barn Owl (Tyto Alba) to Nagaland Zoological Park (NZP), Rangapahar.

The donor said the owl was rescued from the terrace of the college on January 29. After months of caring for it, Thepukhoyi brought it to the care of the zoo.

He handed over the owl on March 14 to officers in charge at NZP.

NZP has appreciated the gesture and said it will look forward to future concerns for saving the diminishing wildlife in the State.

Barn Owls are the most widespread land bird species in the world, occurring in every continent except Antarctica.
