Bhitarkanika National Park reopened for tourists from

:Kendrapara:1/8/17 :The Bhitarkanika National Park in Odisha’s Kendrapara district today reopened for tourists on August 1 after a closure of three months for the breeding season of estuarine crocodiles.

The national park was closed for visitors from May 1 to July 31 in view of the breeding season of the saltwater crocodiles.

Worth mentioning, it remains closed for visitors for three months every year as saltwater crocodiles become very aggressive during breeding season and attack people without provocation.

Notably, the park is home to as many as 1671 estuarine crocodiles. Every year, the forest officials collect eggs from the nesting sites for incubation under semi-natural conditions. For the conservation of the endangered species, the hatchlings are reared for a period of three years and then released into the wild.
