GUWAHATI: As per the mandate of the Central Zoo Authority, New Delhi, Assam State Zoo, Guwahati, was selected and entrusted to proceed with the Conservation Breeding Programme of Golden Langur, which is endemic to the north-western parts of Assam.
The Project for the Conservation Breeding of Golden Langur In Assam State Zoo was started in the year 2011-12.
