We were thrilled to hear the promising news that rhino numbers have increased in Assam, India this week.
PTES grantee Dr. Pranjal Bezbarua wrote to tell us that despite continuous poaching incidents in Kaziranga National Park, the population of greater one-horned rhinos has showed a gradual increase.
The recent census showed 2401 rhinos and increase of 72 rhinos since last census in 2013, as reported in the Assam Tribune.
This clearly reflects the hard work of all the team in a very hostile environment.
