"So far 15 youths have joined the team in Coimbatore forest division. They will alert the villagers when they receive information when the wild animals intrude agricultural fields and villages located near the reserve forest boundaries," N Satheesh, district forest officer (DFO) of Coimbatore forest division said.
Since Coimbatore is a human-animal conflict area, Friends of Forest will be of great help to the forest department, he said.
For the first time in the State, the forest department will introduce a helpline number 180042545456. "From Saturday, people can call the number to inform the movements of wild animals. Forest department staff, who will be available round-the-clock will in pass the information to the respective forest range officials. This would help us to reach the spot and drive back the wild animals to forest from agricultural fields," Satheesh explained.
In the last seven months, more than 15 elephants have died due to starvation, intestinal worms and droughts in Coimbatore forest division. Many people were also killed by wild elephants in Madukkarai, Periyanaickenpalayam and Coimbatore forest ranges.
