The Rhino Population of Kaziranga National Park in Assam Rises by 200

Great news for Wildlife lovers who always wait to see exotic wildlife of Assam.  The Rhino population in Kaziranga National Park of Assam increases by 200 according to the latest census. The population was 2413 in 2018 now it is 200 more which is a huge achievement for the future of Assam Wildlife in the country.

It is the 14th Rhino census conducted on March 25 and March 28 in a 900 sq. km park. There are 1,670 adults (above six years), 365 sub-adults (3 to 6 years), 279 juveniles (1 to 3 years) and 146 calves (0 to 1 year). These findings were made public on March 29.

Local communities around the park helped a lot to prevent poaching of Rhinos and also helped in conservation of Rhino and other wild animals. Due to the floods almost every year, the park witnessed deaths of wild animals including Rhinos but this year’s census result is a ray of hope for these endangered species.
