Bengaluru, Aug 26 (PTI) Bengaluru Bannerghatta Biological

Park announced on Wednesday that an elephant calf will be

named as ''Sudha'' to acknowledge the contribution of Infosys

Foundation Chairperson Sudha Murthy towards the cause of

wildlife conservation.

Executive Director of BBP, Vanashree Vipin Singh said

Sudha Murthy has consented to the proposal.

The elephant named ''Suvarna'', aged 45, gave birth to the

female calf on August 17, taking the elephant population at

BBP to 25.

Sudha Murthy, author, social worker and wife of co-

founder of Bengaluru-headquartered IT major Infosys Ltd, N R

Narayana Murthy, marked her 70th birth day on August 19.

Infosys Foundation is the philanthropic and corporate

social responsibility arm of the company.

"In BBP, Infosys Foundation has contributed towards

execution of work of Tiger enclosure, Zebra enclosure, Giraffe

enclosure, borewell and addressing drinking water storage and

staff welfare through their resources," Vanashree told PTI.

Sudha Murthy used to personally visit BBP and monitor the

work, she said adding, its staff still remember her

involvement.

Officials said many wildlife conservation enthusiasts

suggested to name the baby calf as Sudha since Sudha Murthy

extended the Foundation''s helping hand for development of BBP

and Binkadakatti mini zoo near the district headquarters town

of Gadag in Karnataka.

Housing nearly 2,300 animals of 101 different species,

the government-run BBP, spread over 731.88 hectares, has a

zoo, safari, butterfly park and rescue centre. PTI RS
