Trichy is going to extend a home for Jumbos very soon. An Elephant Rehabilitation center will be coming near Trichy very soon which can support 60 elephants with Store, Kitchen, Vet Clinic and Feeding area.. It will also have quarters that would be constructed inside the centre to accommodate foresters, mahouts and other department staff. The plan is to use 20 hectares of land that belonged to Forest Department near M.R. Palayam near Trichy. It will come up close to the zoological park being established inside the Reserve Forest at M.R. Palayam adjoining the Tiruchi – Chennai national highway.
Well, We have only the administrative approval for this now.. Not sure when will this actually come to existence.. Elephants need to send some petitions , huh … ?
