The Jatayu Conservation Breeding Centre (JCBC), was established to investigate the dramatic declines in the population of three India’s Gyps species of vultures, the Oriental white-backed, Long-billed and Slender-billed vultures, from looming extinction. It is a collaborative initiative between the Haryana Forest Department and the Bombay Natural History Society. The main objectives of the centre were to establish a founder population of 25 pairs of each of the 3 species of vultures and to produce a population of at least 200 birds, in 15 years of each species to be reintroduced to the wild.

The Centre is coordinating the Zoo of Central Zoo Authority for Vulture Conservation Breeding Programme. The Centre received Technical and financial support from the Central Zoo Authority. He also said that different species of exotic birds and animals are being brought into the state of Haryana from other states at Pipli, Rohtak, and Bhiwani Zoos for the promotion and development of Wildlife Tourism and to generate awareness among students for wildlife and the environment.

Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (HoFF) Sh Jagdish Chandra said that the Centre will also be providing founder stock of vultures to other  Vulture Conservation Breeding facilities in the country.
