This zoo was established in 1958 with the objectives of study, conservation and preservation of Himalayan fauna. The animals are well cared for by dedicated keepers. To protect and breed the dwindling stocks of wild animals, to educate the public and instill in them a sense of the worth of these wonderful creatures, it is necessary to keep them in pseudo-natural habitats.
The zoo houses India's only collection of Siberian tigers and some rare species, such as the red panda and the Tibetan wolf. Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park is the famous zoological park in Darjeeling. This park is located adjacent to the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute and is a high-altitude wildlife park.
