Manas baby 13

Author: International Rhino Foundation
Year: 2015
Description: IRF writes on 9 December 2015:<br>Two weeks ago, we celebrated the birth of the 13th Indian rhino calf in Manas National Park. The newborn rhino is the second calf born to one of the females moved to the park from Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary in 2011. Another calf was born in September. We are laser-focused on keeping these little ones safe from poaching, which remains a constant threat.<br><br>Nearly 10 years ago, the International Rhino Foundation and partners made a commitment to help the Indian rhino population spread to new protected areas. In 2008, after years of preparation and under Indian Rhino Vision 2020, we began moving rhinos into Manas National Park, an area where rhinos had been wiped out by civil conflict in the early 2000s. Our bold Indian Rhino Vision 2020 program is what led to this new birth.
