Protest in Assam against rhino poaching

Rhino Deaths Spark Sit-in Protest Against Assam Forest Department

September 2012. Following the brutal killing of four rhinos in Kaziranga National Park, Assam, Aaranyak, the conservation NGO supported by the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, organised a day long sit-in protest on October 1st.

In their statement Aaranyak said: "Many of you will be aware of the unprecedented situation prevailing in the state of Assam following the serial poaching and gruesome killing of four rhinos in Kaziranga National Park. Aaranyak is deeply shocked and anguished at this most unfortunate development, which has not only caused a tremendous setback in the conservation efforts in the state but has also put the entire state to shame because of the inability of the concerned authorities to protect one of our most valuable animals; an animal that symbolises the heritage and the pride of the state of Assam.
