This male elephant calf was rescued from a drain of Phulbari Tea Estate, the largest tea garden in Asia. Tikla also entered the Elephant Rehabilitation Program on January 31st 2011. He was relocated to Manas National Park with Sikom, Soni, Hamren and Tinku and has started a new chapter in his life that will lead him to a natural life in the wild.

2011: There is some concern over Tikla who hasn’t been sighted at all and was not in great condition the last time he was seen. He doesn’t have a radio collar which makes it impossible for the team to locate him.
