Indian Elephant Herd
Fast-depleting forest cover, attributed to mining and other anthropogenic causes in the neighbouring states of Odisha and Jharkhand, have forced elephant herds to wander afar in search of safe harbour. Some have found their way into the relatively less-disturbed, wilder forests of Chhattisgarh. One such herd is regular seen in the Dharamjaigad forests in Raigad district of the state.
