Pobitora Reels Under Flood, Animals Move To Highlands

The Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary is reeling under flood and about 40% of the sanctuary is inundated with flood due to incessant rain. The forest camp at Tuplung, Tamuliduwa, Komarpur, Hahsora, Kusiani, Pagladoba and Hadook are reeling under flood.

The animals in the sanctuary have moved to highland and the forest department has taken measures to protect the animals in the sanctuary.

With their home partially submerged, rhinoceroses and wild buffaloes were seen making their way to higher regions in the sanctuary in order to take refuge.

 Nestled in the grasslands of Assam, Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary is home to the Greater Indian One-Horned Rhinoceroses and houses its highest population in the whole world.

It is also home to the fresh eater Dolphins or South Asian River Dolphins, which are primarily found in the rivers of Ganga and Brahmaputra in India, as well as the Oriental Pied Hornbill, among other mammals.
