Bollywood Actor Randeep Hooda raises concern over flood in Kaziranga

‘85% of #Kaziranga currently submerged-its a natural phenomenon necessary for its riverine ecosystem but it has become more frequent due to #ClimateChange- Randeep Hooda’

Kaziranga: Situation at the Kaziranga National Park and Tiger Reserve still looks vulnerable, as the water level trend in the last 4 days at Nimatighat, Numaligarh, Dhansirimukh and Tezpur are still above the danger level.

Almost 85% of the forest camps at Kaziranga National Park inundated in the state due to flood.

As many as 96 wild animals died and a total of 132 animals have been rescued by the Forest Official/CWRC team and local people at Kaziranga National Park during state floods this year, as per a forest report.

Raising concern over the matter, Bollywood actor Randeep Hooda who is also an Ambassador at the UNEP Convention on Migratory Species took to Twitter saying, “85% of #Kaziranga currently submerged-its a natural phenomenon necessary for its riverine ecosystem but it has become more frequent due to #ClimateChange - the animals there know & seek higher elevations of Karbi Anglong hills. Park Fragmentation, corridor encroachment = Problem.”

Also speaking over the rising animal deaths at the NH37 near Kaziranga National Park, the actor tweeted, “Most animal deaths happen while crossing NH-37 running through #Kaziranga highlighting that human infra structure should not go through National Parks. The highway along with badly allowed resorts, hotels, shops and ancillary tea estate structures further block this movement.”

It may be mentioned that so far 14 hog deer died of road accident, on the other hand, 7 rhinos, 2 wild buffalos, 7 wild boar, 2 swamp deer, 29 hog deer, 2 porcupine died by drowning.
