Rescued rhino calf moved to Manas

By STAFF Reporter

GUWAHATI, June 28 � A rescued rhino calf, Purabi, under care at the Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation (CWRC) was moved to Manas National Park today, to join an orphaned rhino calf being hand-reared there.

This is being done to increase the rehabilitation prospects of the latter calf which has been deprived of company of its kind since its mother fell to poachers early this year.

�We have been rescuing rhino calves at Kaziranga in various circumstances and most of them successfully hand-raised at CWRC. In due course of time, all these calves go back to the wilderness again,� NK Vasu, Chief Conservator of Forest and Director, Kaziranga National Park, said.

Purabi was separated from her mother during the floods in 2012 in Kaziranga, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. She was rescued by the personnel of Forest Department and local people near Haldibari area and admitted to CWRC. Since then she has been under care at the CWRC located near Kaziranga. CWRC was established in 2002 in a joint initiative of the Forest Department and WTI-IFAW partnership.
