Prajna Chowta is the co-founder of Aane Mane Foundation - which was started to study elephants closely to enable their and their habitat Conservation. The base camp of the foundation was located in the forests of Dubare and she had been nurturing many elephants under her care since 2000.

A complaint in this regard was forwarded to the state by the residents and the forest department officials. Following this, in August this year, the Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (Wildlife) and Chief Wildlife Warden ordered the confiscation of the elephants owned by Prajna.

All the elephants will be shifted to Rampura Elephant Camp in Bandipur in two days' time. There are eight elephants including two Adult females, a Makhna male, and elephant calves,” confirmed Ananya Kumar, RFO.
