The Yamuna Biodiversity Park has been an innovative project, an open laboratory for the students of environmental and biological studies, to observe, experiment, learn and teach! A joint project of the University of Delhi (DU) and the Delhi Development Authority (DDA), the concept of the Park was first started in 2001, on almost a barren piece of land with only a fruit orchard nearby. Today, it supports a large diversity of flora and fauna and receives a considerable number of migratory birds every winter.
