the Snake Park has been converted into building, factories and other buildings.

of bricks and concretes.
The Snake Park is an organization which
is meant for nature, environment and animal welfare. The main objective
of this zoo is to spread awareness in the general mass regarding the importance
of animals on the face of the earth. Each and every form of life including
human beings has a definite role to play in nature. The eco-system bears
a delicate balance between living objects and the non living associates. However
animals like the snakes are widely misunderstood. They hardly ever get
justice for their actions. Hence it is only through awareness that people
will learn to respect nature and its components. So majority of emphasis is given
to mass awareness.
Another major goal of the Snake Park is animal
rescue. The Snake Park conducts rescue operation of all sorts
of animals in and around Kolkata.

in animal rescue programmes and also in other programmes whenever The
State Forest Department requests.

welfare of animals.
