Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) has tied up with Animal Planet to sensitise citizens of Mumbai, especially children, about the importance of wildlife. In a first-of-its-kind initiative, MCGM will launch its 3D Theatre located inside Veer Jijabai Udyan and Zoo, powered with content from Animal Planet, starting February 1, 2019.  The entry to the theatre will be free for students from MCGM schools; there will be a nominal fee of Rs 50 for non-MCGM school students/ individuals.


Said Zulfia Waris, Vice President, Premium & Digital networks, Discovery Communications India: “It is an honour for us to work along with MCGM in sensitizing citizens of Mumbai, especially children, about wildlife. The initial line-up of documentaries offered to the V.J.B. Udyan & Zoo theatre are entertaining and at the same time thought provoking – emerging from the fascinating intersection of the animal, human and natural worlds. We are confident that this unique initiative will go a long way in engaging and awakening viewers to the need for animal welfare and conservation.”
