A peacock sanctuary to come up in Vrindavan

peacockVrindavan, (IANS) The Uttar Pradesh government has sanctioned a project to set up a peacock sanctuary in Vrindavan. The first instalment of Rs.10 lakh has been released to the forest department to start the Peacock Conservation Centre, officials here said.
The sanctuary will come up between Mathura and Vrindavan. To begin with, two hectares of land will be developed. Water holes and habitat for the peacocks will also be laid.

Peacocks, which were once in abundance in the entire Braj area, have suffered due to shrinking green cover.
