Here is extremely good news coming from Manas National Park in Assam. An elephant re-integrated into the wild a few months back under the Elephant Reintegration Project has been accepted by its wild mates and is now part of a herd. Considering that the elephant was hand-raised by humans, it is no simple accomplishment for the not-so-wild animal to be accepted and given a place in a wild herd.
Five orphaned elephant calves aged three to five had lost their family due to various circumstances in Assam. But thankfully the calves were rescued and are now back in the wild world they belong to.
