Sad news from Manas National Park

Home // News // Sad news from Manas National Park

Today we received the sad news that game watcher and park guard Ananta Boro of Manas National Park  was attacked and killed by a wild elephant while on duty in November. Mr Boro was part of a team working to protect wildlife in nature reserves in Assam, India against poaching and other threats. He was part of a four-man patrol in the riparian Sidajhar area around the Manas-Beki river ecosystem when they came across four wild elephants, one of which attacked.

People’s Trust for Endangered Species has supported conservation efforts in Manas and Kaziranga National Parks in Assam for more than a decade. Projects have focused on threatened animals such as the rare one horned rhino, which are present in the region.

We send our condolences to Ananta Boro’s family, friends and colleagues.
