Force to stop rhino poaching

A Special Rhino Protection Force is coming up in Assam. It will help Kaziranga, Manas and Pobitora check rhino poachings in near future. Another project on the card is a special task force to deal with encroachment in the Kaziranga National Park along with other the other forest land. These were more or less of what Prakash Javadekar said just before the Union Environment and Forests Minister had left back for New Delhi on Saturday. According to the minister, in the initial stage local youths would form the force as they knew both the forests and animals.
