This Village in India Was Completely Relocated Because of Elephants | TakePart

The villagers didn’t realize they were building in a wildlife corridor elephants have used for centuries to travel between habitats. The village was near Kaziranga National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site about 55 miles away, and between a forested hill and the Nambor-Doigurung Wildlife Sanctuary. Around 1,800 elephants migrate seasonally among these environs in search of food when flooding from the Brahmaputra River drenches the park. Moving to higher ground to reach forests and sanctuaries, the animals travel along what conservationists have since identified as the Kalapahar-Doigurung elephant corridor, the area where Ram Terang was built.
