This edition of the Panda newsletter covers the translocation of four rhinos carried out by the Assam Forest department together with WWF India and the International Rhino Foundation (IRF) from Kaziranga Wildlife Sanctuary to Manas National Park in Assam. This was the third successful translocation carried out since IRV 2020 was launched and carries with it, the story of team-work, logistical coordination, involvement of local communities and in the background, a huge preplanning exercise. The edition also brings out photographs of the Rusty Spotted Cat and the Four-Horned deer, captured on camera during the tiger estimation exercise in Pilibhit. These pictures are unique as the two species have not been photographed earlier in this part of the Terai Arc Landscape and goes to the point that we need to explore our forests and larger environs with an explorer's eye as much new knowledge reposes there.
