Dudhwa National Park is the only national park in Asia, where rhino rehabilitation programme is being carried out.

2012: Six elephants will be translocated to Dudhwa Tiger Reserve where there are 13 jumbos at present, park officials said today. The six elephants would be brought from Jaldapara in West Bengal, they said, adding that they are expected to reach Dudhwa within a week. These pachyderms would be trained for one to two years before being engaged for tourism purposes. Dudhwa has 13 elephants currently among which 11 are being used for tourism purposes, they said. Mahouts from West Bengal would accompany the elephants and stay in Dudhwa till the tuskers get acquainted with the surroundings, they said. Meanwhile, DTR authorities today tracked male tusker 'Mohan', which had run away from the park on Friday.
