From Pobitora to Manas

The Indian rhinoceros (Rhinoceros unicornis) is the pride of India's grasslands. Through strict protection the declining population of rhinos in early 1900s recovered and grew to over 2700 individuals in India, in 2011.

The film 'From Pobitora To Manas' provides an overview of the rhino translocations undertaken from Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary to Manas National Park under the Indian Rhino Vision 2020 (IRV 2020). It follows the journey of the 10 rhinos what were translocated between April 2008 and January 2012 and the immense efforts that went into making the whole exercise successful.
