A shelter for Retired elephants

Kerala Forest Department took an inspiring decision to look after the old elephants of Kerala. The rehabilitation centre is a unique centre in the country itself. The proposed centre is at Kottur near Thiruvananthapuram. Kerala has the privilege of having the maximum number of captive elephants in the country 900! But the most of the owners exploit them in their youth and they will be rejected in their old age. The centre incorporates the facilities for the fodder and there will be a veterinary clinic for these pachyderms.
