CHECK THIS OUT PEEPLE
A rehabilitation center for elephants where old and retired elephants, injured ones who needed care, the abandoned with nowhere to go, are all looked after here. In addition, it is also a place we humans could go and be with them. Sounds wonderful, right? That’s how I felt when I first heard of it from my cousin. So off we went, the L & M and I on a Sunday morning to the Agastyavanam Biological Park, which is a forest range between the better know Peppara and Neyyar dam sanctuaries. The Elephant Rehabilitation Center, the result of an inspiring decision of the Kerala Forest Department, is a unit working under the range office of the area. It is a unique concept in the country itself. I bet no state needs it more than Kerala with the distinction of having the maximum number of captive elephants (almost 900!) within its borders.
