Mr Gogoi interacted with the centre’s management, veterinarians and animal keepers, and took stock of the condition of the flood-rescued rhino calves, elephant calves and other animals. He also visited the adjacent site of the upcoming Kaziranga Discovery Park (KDP), a facility being developed by WTI and the Assam Forest Department to showcase the splendours of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kaziranga. The KDP will include the Mark Shand Learning Centre for Asian elephants and a clinic for captive elephants (both created in partnership with Elephant Family), and an IFAW-WTI learning centre on wildlife rescue and rehabilitation.
