Aaranyak expresses deep concern at the continued rhino poaching

Aaranyak has expressed its deep concern at the continued poaching of rhinos in different parts of Assam. In first two weeks of the new year already rhinos are poached in Kaziranga, Orang and Manas NP. A rhino carcass was detected on Sunday evening in Bansbari range of Manas National Park with bullet marks and horn being stolen. This was a translocated male rhino which was earlier translocated into Manas from Pabitora WLS under Indian Rhino Vision 2020. This was the third translocated rhinos poached in Manas NP in past two years. Aaranyak urges the government to take stern action against erring forest staffs if found guilty of negligence of duty to strengthen regular patrol and vigilance. Further culprits involved in poaching should be brought to justice.
 
This was stated in a press release of Aaranyak, , a society for biodiversity conservation in North East India.
