The world-renowned Kaziranga National Park will see a census of rhinos being conducted from tomorrow onwards.
The three-day-long rhino census will be the 14th of its kind and will take place on March 26, 27 and 28. This will be the first rhino census in Kaziranga since 2018.
For these three days, the national park will be partially closed down for visitors. While morning elephant safari rides will be suspended for the three days, jeep safaris rides will be conducted in a phase-wise manner so as not to hamper the conducting of the rhino census.
On March 26, jee safaris will be closed down in Kohora, Bagori and Burapahar forest range.
For the next two days, jeep safaris will be closed down in Kohora, Bagori and Agoratoli forest ranges.
With this being the first rhino census in Kaziranga since 2018, preparations have been made in a big way to conduct the fresh rhino census.
While in the 2018 census, a total of 2,413 rhinos were recorded, forest officials are confident that this time the numbers will rise further.
The census would be conducted in 48 compartments within the national park premises.
A total of 63 specialists have arrived in Kaziranga to carry out the rhino census.
