Translocation of rhino in Assam
The Government of Assam constituted the Rhino Task Force in June 2005, incorporating conservationists from diverse backgrounds, from government as well as non-governmental organizations, to make the dream drafted under IRV 2020 into reality. The first meeting of the Rhino Task Force was held in November 2005 at
Guwahati. The preliminary plan of action was prepared and the budget needed to initiate the work to enable re-introduction of rhinos in Manas National Park and other rhino habitats within the state was estimated.
