NGO to interact with man-animal conflict victims

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, Dec 17 - Kaziranga Wildlife Society (KWS), the oldest conservation NGO of the State, will undertake a series of interactive programmes with the victims of man-animal conflicts in the recognised pockets of the conflicts throughout the State.

KWS, which celebrated its 48th foundation day recently, will start the �save the elephant� campaign from the third week of December. The starting point of the drive will be Numaligarh, a highly-depredated area, said Mubina Akhtar, secretary of KWS.

The KWS foundation day celebration started with lighting of the ceremonial lamp by KWS president Padum Borthakur.

Speaking on the occasion, Ramanikanta Deka, former KWS president said the State government should rethink the revival of �Mela Shikar�, an elephant-capture tradition that once helped check man-elephant conflicts.

Rudra Goswami, former Conservator of Forests and member of the State Biodiversity Board, appealed to the State Forest department to negotiate with the Railways for construction of railway overbridges in areas of frequent elephant movement.

Abani Baruah, former KWS president, proposed creation of a list of places of occurrence of the conflicts and following a comprehensive policy of awareness and intervention.

KWS secretary Akhtar and member Jayanta Kumar Das will coordinate the campaign throughout the State.

Anup Sarma, Raj Baruah, Ranjit Dohotia, Jagada Kanta Bhuyan, Apurba Kumar Das and Jogen Bhuyan also participated in the deliberations.
