Gorakhpur to host International Bird Festival in February

Gorakhpur, Nov 9 (UNI) An International Bird Festival will be organised in Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s home district Gorakhpur in February.
State Forest and Environment Minister Dara Singh Chauhan on Monday here said that Gorakhpur is going to be a much better option in terms of tourism and eco-tourism.
After the Shaheed Ashfaq Ullah Khan Zoological Park and Ramgarh Lake were declared the first notified wetland of the state, its identity will be established at not only the national but an international level. Keeping this in mind, the International Bird Festival will be organised in Gorakhpur in February.
During this festival, international level tourists will come here for Gorakhpur lake and bird watching. Forest Department officials have been instructed to materialize this event.
The Forest Minister said that under the leadership of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, history was created by planting 25 crore saplings in one day for environmental protection. Next year, this record will be broken by planting 30 crore saplings in one day.
Stressing on eco-tourism, he said that Purvanchal will get the gift of a zoological garden next year. It will be so beautiful that if any tourist comes to Kushinagar, they will definitely visit the Gorakhpur zoo. The Forest Minister also invited the people of Gorakhpur to visit Dudhwa, Katarniaghat, Tiger Reserve for tiger sightings
