The Assam government will construct 43 highlands at the Kaziranga national park and Pobitara wildlife sanctuary. State Forest minister Pramila Rani Brahma said that initial work is being done for this purpose. If everything goes according to plan then highlands will be constructed within a month. Hundreds of wild animals had drowned to death this year during flood in the Kaziranga national park. Highlands are required to shelter wild animals during flood.
