Rain delays tusker migration

2009-08-31 - Jamshedpur, United States.

Each year, in the month of September, elephants leave the reserve area and head to Purulia, West and East Midnapore districts. They return to sanctuary before the start of the summer season, around mid-February. Migration usually depends on the cultivation of paddy crops in the villages that fall along the migratory route of the tuskers.
