ELEPHANT CALVES AT CWRC
0   0    

The small family of elephant calves currently being hand-raised at IFAW-WTI's Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation (CWRC) near Kaziranga has been exploring the Panbari Reserve Forest in recent months.

Whether on daily wild walks or at feeding time, Buree, one of the younger calves at CWRC, is always flanked by older females Dhemaji and Karbi.

The calves are housed in a stockade contiguous to the forest and are growing increasingly bold during their daily foraging expeditions, animal keepers report.

“Is that a snake or a stick?” Buree seems to ask, striking a pose during one of the elephants’ wild walks.

“We find that the calves, especially the older ones, are now especially keen to explore the wild habitats we have been increasingly exposing them to”, says Dr Panjit Basumatary, lead veterinarian at CWRC.
