Kathmandu, 28 December 2012 – AWNN today send a thank you letter to Prime Minister Baburam Bhattarai to show its appreciation for the government’s decision not to kill Dhrube. AWNN yesterday organised a demonstration at the Department of National Parks and Wildlife Conservation.
In the letter AWNN urges the government to implement the Elephant Conservation Management Action Plan 2010. The goal of this plan is to save the elephants in the wild from extinction, immediately address habitat loss and mitigate associated people-elephant conflict.
Implementing the plan will help save the lives of people and elephants alike and avoid future Dhrube’s from turning rogue.
