HOLDING GROUND FOR ELEPHANTS

To minimize the escalating human elephant conflict, the  Government has proposed to establish enclosed holding grounds in the North Central and North Western Provinces, for elephants.

The proposal has to be studied with care, as it would hamper the breeding patterns and genetic base of the declining elephant population, especially so when they are moved out of their natural habitat. The Society has conveyed its views.
