    Thanks for this list ! So many zoos and so little news about them......
    Hopefully some ZooChatters from India or visiting India can provide us with news, up-dates, photos and other info about all these places !

    In the book New Worlds New Animals subtitled From Menagerie to Zoological Park in the Nineteenth century (Hoage and Deiss) there is an interesting chapter on the Calcutta Zoological Gardens and it's eventual superintendent Ram Brama Sanyal who seams to have been the Gerry Durrell of his day. If he had been in a European zoo I think we would have heard a lot more about him. Among other things he wrote "A Handbook of the Management of Animals in Captivity in Lower Bengal" published in March 1892 Unfortunately apart from a small photo of Brama Sanyal there ore no other photos in that section.

    I was going to add this link to the thread originally but forgot and haven't had internet since then. It is the website for the CZA of India where you can search for complete stock inventories of zoos, or search by species to see where they are kept. All the zoos in India are government-operated.

    Zoowise

    (And thanks to devilfish who originally brought it to my attention)

    The ZooWise link above to the stock inventories of Indian zoos no longer works.

    While looking around I found the annual reports of the CZA, the most recent of which (2017) lists the current zoos in India (165 zoos and rescue centres, and two circuses, listed from page 21):
    http://cza.nic.in/annual report 1617 english.pdf

    The annual reports going back to 1992 are all here: Annual Reports


    Also here is the most recent of the annual stock inventories (2016-2017) for all the zoos in India (it's 398 pages long!), arranged alphabetically by zoo name under five categories from "Large Zoos" to "Circuses"): http://cza.nic.in/inventory 201617.pdf

    That and all sorts of other publications (inventories, studbooks, etc etc) can be browsed here: Publication
