Rhino census over: KNP reopens on Monday

The rhino census in the Kaziranga National Park in Assam is over on Sunday. KNP officials expect rise in the number of the animals.

The census began on Saturday in all the ranges but bad weather hampered the process with many of the survey teams yet to return. The number of rhinos is yet to be ascertained.

The census was conducted in all the ranges- Kohora, Bagori, Agaratoli and Burhapahar with the park closed for tourists since Friday. It is scheduled to reopen on Monday. Nearly 200 people, including a group of trained forest officials, representatives of non-government officials and local villagers along with 34 elephants were involved in the exercise.
