This is one classic example of how concerted efforts by government officials and civil society can make a difference to conservation.Jumbos move in the vicinity of an illegal resort in the elephant corridor. Sustained pursuance of the case by a few bureaucrats and wildlife activists has ensured that revenue land, over 5,000 acres, falling in a critical wildlife corridor at Kaniyanapura is declared a reserve forest.
