PASIGHAT, Jan 13: The D. Ering Wildlife Sanctuary is gradually getting revived after stopping of illegal  hunting and poaching activities.
This can be felt as one enters the sanctuary and unlike previously, wild animals like buffaloes, elephants, hog deers and sambar deers can now be spotted easily. Herds of elephants which often visit the Borguli wildlife range office makes the sightings more interesting and thrilling and birds like Hornbill which once disappeared due to unabated hunting have also returned.
It is worth mentioning that strong departmental and police action over the last one year are giving results. The incumbent Divisional Forest Officer besides giving stern warnings to all suspected hunters has also issued a radio announcement to stop all illegal means of fishing like blasting (dynamite fishing) and electrocution in and around the sanctuary’s rivers. Range Officer Naning Perme informed his team has destroyed around 50 salt licks and hunting ambushes after the current DFO Tasang Taga took over the charge a couple of years ago.
While welcoming the visitors in the sanctuary, the DFO has appealed to the people, NGOs, Gaon Burahs and public leaders to help and cooperate with the department to make DEWS a favoured wildlife tourism destination in the lines of Kaziranga National Park.
