The special assistant Malik Amin Aslam revealed to the media that it would be completely safe to visit the park as the preparations for security has already begun,

The Margalla Hill park is originated over Capital Development Authority and is entirely well-maintained and developed. Furthermore, it was the only place that also didn’t close for the public in Lockdown. People could visit the park anytime along with their families.

Margalla Hills National Park

If we talk a bit about the park, it is home to 600 plant species, 38 mammals, 402 bird varieties, and 27 reptile species. A lot of struggle has been put down in order to make this plan successful. Each and every step is down with proper and well-informed guides to avoid any incident.

It all started when a few leopards were found at the start of 2021 roaming on the Margalla hills. The Islamabad Wildlife Management Board found no incident ever reported due to monkey population and wild bear. The park has an inevitably healthy eco-system due to the presence of 5 leopards.

The leopards are found at night because they sleep in the daytime. While trekking, if you ever come across any of the leopards, it is better to stay there instead of running because it is how you can save your life.

However, the work has already started with all the necessary and proper measures. It will take a little time to complete the work. The senior director of the World Wildlife Fund has also ensured to lend his services to this project. It is undoubtedly a wise idea to utilize zoo space.
