2021-12-23: The Elephant Rehabilitation Centre at MR Palayam continues to grow as a haven for sick pachyderms in the State, with two new elephants in dire health conditions being brought for rehabilitation last week. With this, the elephant population at the centre has increased to eight in three years.

After remaining idle for years, the facility became a go-to destination for treating for sick elephants in 2019. In a latest addition, Rohini (25) and Indira (60) were brought in from Topslip and Rajapalayam for treatment on December 19 and 20 respectively. Satish, Chief Conservator of Forests, Tiruchy range, said. Apart from Rohini and Indira, Indu (35), Santhiya (45), Jayanthi (23), Malachi (34), Gomathi (65) and Jameela (60) have also been receiving treatment at the centre for over a couple of years.

An average of 230 kg of food is provided to each elephant every day. The diet includes green fodder, fruits and a ragi mudde made using different millets.

A veterinary doctor from Coimbatore monitors the health of each elephant every fortnight and a veterinary doctor from the district visits the camp every single week.
