To encourage the sustainable use of natural resources, the Bhutanese government is planning to launch a wildlife conservation programme that includes the setting up of a zoological park. The park would house a number of endangered herbivorous animal species. Besides the park, the programme also includes agro-biodiversity conservation projects for conserving plant genetic resources. A gene bank would also be set up.
