March 23, 2024

Mysore/Mysuru: Indian woman cricketer Veda Krishnamurthy demonstrated her ongoing commitment to wildlife conservation by renewing her adoption of a leopard at the Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens, also known as Mysuru Zoo. Yesterday, Veda donated Rs. 50,000 to adopt Bhavana, a female leopard, for another year.

This marks the continuation of Veda’s support for the conservation efforts at the Zoo. Back in 2017, she initially adopted the Indian Leopard by paying an adoption fee of Rs. 35,000 for one year. Since then, Veda has consistently renewed her adoption annually, showcasing her dedication to the cause of wildlife protection.

Expressing her love for animals and her desire to contribute to their welfare, Veda, a native of Chikkamagaluru, chose to continuously support the Zoo’s animal adoption scheme.

Upon renewing her adoption, she was presented with a certificate by Mysuru Zoo Executive Director Mahesh Kumar, acknowledging her commitment to the conservation of wildlife, particularly leopards.
