2002: 49 elephants: In Jaldapara, there are 22 adult elephants, eight sub-adults and 19 calves. Of the adults, four elephants are exclusively used for tourism. Some of these elephants are used as kunkies to drive away the marauding wild elephants that stray into the fringe villages elsewhere in North Bengal. (Mathew, 2002)

2007: (Yokohama is an error, should be Okinawa) Jaldapara jumbos off to Yokohama: Two elephants, Rahul and Devi, were ferried to Yokohama zoo from Calcutta on Wednesday by Air India’s ‘combo’ flight (passenger and cargo aircraft). The two elephants were brought to Calcutta airport on Tuesday from Jaldapara sanctuary. The aircraft landed at the airport around 6am and took off at 10am. The flight, usually from Delhi to Tokyo via Bangkok, was diverted through Calcutta on Wednesday for carrying the elephants.Jaldapara jumbos off to Yokohama
(While Rahul was born in Holong in 2002, Devi was born in Chilapata in 2000. The two have the same father, a tusker named Nilkanto, but different mothers.)

2008-03-23: Five trained jumbo elephants have been shifted from Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary in Bengal to the Dudhwa National Park in Uttar Pradesh by forest department to monitor the rhino rehabilitation centre and the tiger reserve. Two males - Gajraj and Mohanlal and three she-elephants Madhu, Chameli and Sulochana were chosen for the purpose of patrolling. Jaldapara has nearly 56 trained elephants at present...Last year (2007) two young elephant calves Rahul and Devi were sent to Okinawa kids Discovery Kingdom in Japan.

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.
