In a bid to mitigate the issues related to the man-elephant conflict posing a grave threat to the jumbo’s co-existence, an awareness-cum-interactive programme was organised at the Kohora range of Kaziranga National Park(KNP) on October 3rd, 2019 as a part of the 65th Wildlife Week.
The programme organized jointly by the authorities of the KNP and The Corbett Foundation, an NGO focusing on protection of wild species and their habitats was participated by a host of school, college going students.
From the aftermath of illegal poaching, trade of elephant ivory and other wildlife products to protection of wild elephant habitat the students were given suggestions on how to prevent man-animal conflicts and maintain the ecology.
“To arouse the general awakening of the people towards the protection of wildlife, an interaction session was organized and the children were taught on the issues of man animal conflict, steps to be taken on dealing with wild jumbos straying into the nearby villages and how to conserve the wild,” said an official of the KNP.
It may be mentioned that the KNP has been observing elephant day every year on the second day of the Wildlife Week.
