  • Poignant scenes mark effort to reunite three-day old elephant calf with its mother (Udedurgam Reserve Forest, India) - Save the Elephants
    department in an hour long late evening exercise carefully drove the calf into the forest However less than 24 hours later the calf had strayed out of the forest and was once again spotted by locals late Sunday evening The calf was delivered near Nallarallapalli about seven km from Rayakottai enroute Kelamangalam There is a possibility that the calf couldn t keep up with its mother s pace and was left behind says Babu forest ranger in charge of Rayakottai range On Monday morning the department personnel once again drove the calf in an anti depredation vehicle into the forest This time the calf was left deep inside Udedurgam Reserve Forest The exercise itself was rendered with its own poignant moments when the petrified calf kept returning to the proximity of humans It is rare for the highly protective mother to abandon its calf Usually a calf is abandoned if it is seen to be too weak to survive It may happen in the case of a premature birth But this calf did not look premature and is likely to have lost contact after it fell off the mother s pace says Mr Babu However the chances of the calf reuniting with its mother are high inside the reserve forest than along the fringes Since the herd is likely to abandon the calf if it detected human scent forest watchers had dissolved elephant dung and poured it over the calf to stifle the scent from human contact As the calf moves inside the forest the mother might catch the scent of the dung and trace its way to the calf hoped Mr Babu http www thehindu com news national tamil nadu poignant scenes mark effort to reunite threeday old elephant calf with its mother article8213075 ece Importance of Elephants Threats

    big cats and corridors of the pachyderms This development in turn has witnessed the big cats moving into human landscapes Leopard expert Dr Vidya Athreya says capture and translocation is not the solution as another animal will take its place Captures have often resulted in attacks and sometimes these big cats have returned to their home ranges There are instances when a leopard has travelled 300 km back to its home after capture Although there are not many research studies on leopards outside protected areas Athreya says that leopards live and thrive in rural landscapes nowadays She adds These animals take cover in the day and roam in the night for food Human use areas are rich in food and water Besides leopards are attracted to garbage that may have meat pieces and are also food for stray dogs which become its prey They don t need reserve forest areas to thrive as they have adapted to surviving in agricultural landscapes and every now and then stray into cities attracted by easily available food Leopards are known to keep away from human beings as they don t like humans In this regard the Forest Department should launch awareness campaigns and educate people on the measures to be taken in the event of a leopard being sighted in their vicinity Athreya explains This has been done in Mumbai which frequently sees leopards in some of the suburbs adjoining the Sanjay Gandhi National Park These ongoing efforts to educate people has in fact reduced man animal conflict in the mega city Tuskers Outside the Wild Wildlife experts say that with shrinking habitat and disappearance of elephant corridors in the regions surrounding Bengaluru there have been frequent reports of sightings of these gentle giants on the outskirts of the city There have been instances when these animals attracted by sugarcane coconut and paddy have turned into crop raiders and also attacked people Although elephants are known to live in herds comprising one or two dominant males females breeding mothers and young ones a few wild elephants are known to traverse from Bannerghata ranges to Tumakuru every season in search of food says a forest officer Therefore it is not unusual to see pachyderms criss crossing and coming on to the Bannerghata Anekal Road as it is their area People therefore have to be careful and avoid elephants while using this road The Bannerghata Biological Park s elephant safari has 19 elephants including females With the park surrounded by the National Park on both sides wild tuskers do visit the safari now and then for a romantic interlude The Bannerghata National Park which abounds the Safari Park on two sides is part of an elephant corridor that connects both the Billigiri Rangana Betta and the Sathyamangala forest area Despite solar fencing and elephant proof trenching incidents of man animal conflict have been reported as these regions are close to their habitat Research Studies According to recent research studies by Wildlife Conservation Society WCS India
