The NBNP is an initiative of the Coimbatore Zoological Park Society (CZPS) established in 1986 to promote conservation of the fauna and flora of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve. The Nilgiri Biospehere Nature Park (NBNP) is registered under Tamil Nadu Societies Registration Act 1975. The primary objective of the NBNP is to create awareness among the people about the natural heritage of the Nilgiris Biosphere. A zoo at the NBNP is aimed at attracting people to its location.

Since its establishment, NBNP has successfully restored and helped growth of many different vegetation types - over 430 species of 25,000 plants of which 85 species are found only in NBR. It is interesting that nearly 30% of these 85 species are endangered in the wild. The NBNP's collection of threatened plant species has been recognized by the National Botanical Research Institute (NBRI) Lucknow, India and Botanical Garden Conservation International (BGCI) UK.

There is a Nature Trail (about 1.2 km) at the NBNP on which the visitor can experience the joy and thrill of seeing some of the rare plants, birds, snakes, butterflies and insects. There are 100 species of birds, 20 species of reptiles, 22 species of amphibians, 18 species of mammals, and 300 plus Invertebrates.

The NBNP initiative is actively supported and promoted by well known industrialists and philanthropists of Coimbatore.

  • Place is very nice but travel is not adequate, we have to take auto for about 20 to 30 travel. When I have been there, they have started to work on road. This place have many endangered species of trees, also they maintain local guide to explain them. We went there for small group event. They also have rabbits grown there. I think I saw 6 or 7 of then
  • Nice place... It is surrounded in 70 acres.. guide accompanies us.. they give a brief about the rare species of trees planted... it is pollution free area... The nature park is open on all days from 9 am to 5 pm. There is ample space for parking. The entry fee is 50 for adults...
