Peacock & Chinkara Breeding Centre, Jhabuwa (Hindi: मोर एवं चिंकारा प्रजनन केंद्र, झाबुआ, रेवाड़ी जिला, हरियाणा, भारत) is a 750 acre protected peacock (Indian peafowl) and chinkara reserve forest in Jhabuwa village 15 km south of Bawal in Rewari district in the Indian state of Haryana. Jhabuwa is 100 kilometres (62 mi) from Delhi and 70 kilometres (43 mi) from Gurugram and 200 km from Hisar.

History[edit]

This centre of Forests Department, Haryana was officially opened on 4 October 2011 by then Chief Minister, Om Prakash Chautala. The state government will be providing about Rs.20 crore of funding for the centre over the next 20 years.[1]

Reserve forest[edit]

The Jhabuwa reserve forest lies between Jhabuwa, Bidawas, Bhadoj and Khijuri villages. Out of 750 acres reserve forest, 80 acres are allocated for the captive breeding of Chinkara and Indian peafowl. 20 Peaocks were tagged, with the help of Bombay Natural History Society, on legs and wing for the long term study of movement and health. Those were release in the wild in February 2018.[2]
