Bhubaneswar: Visitors to Orissa's Nandankanan zoo will soon be able to see 3-D films on wildlife, thanks to a tie up with software firm Delta Solutions.

"We already have a hall in the zoo. It will be developed as a theatre where at least 20 people at a time would be able to watch movies on wildlife wearing 3-D specs," said zoo director Ajit Patnaik.

"It is being developed through public-private partnership," Patnaik told IANS. Delta Solutions is based here.

There would be 16 shows a day, providing not only entertainment but also creating awareness. The facility would be available from the second week of December.

The 452-hectare Nandankanan zoo, 12 km from here, was declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1979. It is home to over 1,200 animals of 130 species, including 14 white tigers.
