A national park in the Indian state of Gujarat is trying to help lions and other animals survive the country’s heatwave. The wildlife reserve has set up more than 450 artificial ponds by accessing groundwater or by filling them up using hand pumps. It comes as many parts of India are reeling from soaring temperatures, with parts of Orissa enduring its warmest March in decades.

    Lot of plastic and cement is used in making the ponds. In nature they get pure organic water prepared by mother nature. We don't know what long term impact this will have on the wild animals

    Tips : Birds love shallow containers (I used a chiller from an old fridge) so that they could drink and also be able to wet their feathers if they need.I have also kept a larger container for big birds to take a dip.Sparrows regularly visit everyday to drink and bath.They arrive in flocks.Bigger birds like crows and kites use the deeper water filled ones to wet their feathers.Keep it under shade otherwise the water temperature will rise due to direct sunshine.
    I live in kerala (India) and its hot and humid here.But it rains in the afternoon.

    My hometown Baripada recorded that temp 44.6°C . That day the wind was blowing hot enough to feel it burning your face. And that was inside my room with a cooler at full speed. Did not have the courage to go outside. Would have been roasted, fried and steamed at the same time.
