Rhinos to be re-introduced in Uttarakhand
Posted on : 13 Feb 2020Views: 228
- According to officials, around 10 rhinos will be brought in CTR in the first phase and subsequently, 10 more would be added.
- Experts claim that protecting these rhinos from poaching will be the only challenge for the state’s forest department staff after the move.
- The geographical terrain and environmental conditions in CTR are suitable for rhinos.
- The ideal sites chosen in Corbett are valley habitats bounded on either side by the lower Himalayas (north), Shivalik Hills (south) and the Ramganga Reservoir (east), which would also act as natural barriers to rhino movement outside these area, thereby minimising conflict with people.
