Jan 25, 2021 10:53 IST

After remaining out of bounds for tourists for over a week, the Bhitarkanika National Park and its scenic wetland sites in Kendrapara district reopened on Sunday, a senior forest official said. 

"We are ready to play host to domestic and international tourists after a nine-day break. We receive about one lakh tourists in a year," the official told PTI 

The national park has 70 per cent of the country's estuarine or saltwater crocodiles, the conservation of which was started in 1975.
