Signals to inform train drivers of wild elephants


The Department of Wildlife Conservation has decided to put in place a signal system to inform railway drivers of any wild elephants roaming around railway tracks.

Director General Chandana Sooriyabandara said that several researchers have tested the system and a pilot project will be launched within the next three weeks. The Department of Wildlife Conservation points out that 10% of the annual elephant deaths occur due to train accidents.
