ELEPHANT CAUSALITIES BY RAILWAYS

The many incidents of elephant deaths by collsion with the railway plying on the Northern Line and Eastern Line was a matter of serious concern.

While the Society addressed separate letters to the Department of Wildlife Conservation and the Railway Authorities, we Called for the holding of a joint meeting to sort out matters. At the joint meeting, with the officials of the two departments we made our suggestions. A detailed report has been drawn out, to be implemented to minimize the elephant casualties due to the railway.
