Foresters patrolling on elephants during monsoons: Viral video

Elephants excite everyone from children to adults. The elephant, the largest living creature on land, is a very sensitive animal. Walks tied to the trunk of an elephant. Elephants are also used by the forest department for their patrolling duties.

In this way, a video of the forest department carrying out the challenging task of patrolling on an elephant in the Terai forests is going viral on social media when the forest is flooded with rain during the monsoon season.

The Terai forests are the swamps, savannas and forested areas south of the outer foothills of the Himalayas, the Siwalik Hills and the Indo-Gangetic Plain of the Ganges, the Brahmaputra and their tributaries to the north.

Patrolling these Terai forests during monsoons is a challenging task for the forest department. Moreover, when rain water is stagnant in and around the forest, it is very challenging for the forest department to patrol on elephants with bundles. For example, a video of forest department patrolling on an elephant during the rainy season in the Terai forests is going viral on social media.

IFS officer Ramesh Pandey shared a video of forest officials patrolling an elephant in rainwater recorded by Sujoy Banerjee on his X social media page.

In this video, during the rainy season, the forests are patrolled around the forest by sitting on elephants with reeds growing around the forest. The forest department patrols in rows of seated elephants. Patrolling the jungle riding on elephants in the rain is a truly challenging task.

Commenting on the video, Ramesh Pandey said, “Patrolling the Terai forests during monsoons is very challenging.

Patrolling elephants help to access flooded areas and high wet grasslands during this difficult time. Congratulations to our Green Guards.” He said. A video of forest department patrolling on an elephant in rain-flooded forest areas is going viral on social media.

Commenting on the video, an X user sang, “Hail to the Green Guardians.”
