GUWAHATI: The Assam State Zoo and Aaranyak were successfully able to hatch a pair of Greater Adjutant Stork (Hargila) chicks on an artificial platform within the Zoo enclosure.

Assam State Zoo DFO, Tejas Mariswamy speaking to media said, "This happened for the first time in a zoo. Before this we don’t have any report that this endangered bird has bred in any zoo or any captivity."

It is to be mentioned that this rarest of storks is currently on the brink of extinction due to habitat loss stemming from indiscriminate felling of big trees and dwindling wetlands.
