Flora and Fauna of NIMHANS
The 25-acre NIMHANS Campus, in the heart of the garden city, is not just a training ground for medical professionals but also a home to rich flora and fauna. It houses a variety of exotic trees, notable among them being sacred trees like Banyan and Peepal, fruit trees like Jackfruit, Mango and Butter fruit, and flowering trees like Pink Trumpet, Persian Lilac and Lake View Jasmine. The campus has a diverse environment abundant with varieties of fauna. The typical fauna include squirrels, monkeys, various types of reptiles, frogs, and a plethora of insects. The campus also plays hosts to large groups of migratory birds and butterflies in different seasons, every year. Not only has the Institute preserved its environs but also has set a trend in spreading a ‘green’ message of conservation. The images were contributed by Dr. Pramod K.
