Elephant sanctuary to be opened in Ye Nwe

An elephant sanctuary will be opened jointly by the government departments concerned, an elephant conservation group from Australia and Mingalar Myanmar NGO, according to a report in the City News Daily yesterday.
In Myanmar, Elephant is one of the animals which need to be given priority to take care. The elephant conservation camp will be opened with an aim to prevent the endangered species from extinction. The elephant conservation camp is planned to be opened at Ye Nwe forest reserve in Bago Yoma.
Although we don’t need the wide space to take care of sick elephants, we need a much wider space for the healthy elephants to feed and go around naturally. Currently, we are still discussing with the government to open the elephant conservation camp, said an official from the Mingalar Myanmar NGO.
Similar elephant conservation camps have been opened in 14 countries by now with the assistance of the elephant conservation group from Australia.—GNLM
