The 2 week rhino calf which was orphaned after poachers killed its mother is in good health and being
cared for by Manas National Park staff.  The calf was found 3km from where the body of its parent was discovered with its horn missing, The team immediately provided veterinary care and milk to the calf and tho humans w
ill not be able to make up for the absence of  its mother, every effort will be raising the calf. It’s really a pity to see the suckling calf without a  mother.

This event was particularly tragic because the mother of the calf had been translocated to Manas.  A long period of civil unrest had decimated wildlife in the area but a strong recovery program including
translocation has seen viable populations of tiger, elephant, rhino and other core species return.  The national park, which borders Bhutan’s Royal National Park, is considered one of India’s most
important biodiversity hotspots and has UNESCO World Heritage listing.
