Sepahijala Forest dept implements measures to protect monkeys on national highway


By TC News Desk

Agartala, 12th June 2024:  In a bid to protect the monkeys of Sepahijala Wildlife Sanctuary, the Sepahijala District Forest Department has introduced alternative arrangements for their safe passage across the Agartala-Sabroom National Highway. This initiative is expected to significantly reduce the mortality rate of these animals, which have frequently fallen victim to road accidents.

Officials from the Forest department yesterday confirmed that the new system would facilitate safer movement for the sanctuary’s wildlife. The need for such measures had become increasingly urgent, following numerous incidents where animals, particularly monkeys, were killed while attempting to cross the highway. These incidents had drawn considerable media attention, leading to public outcry and prompting the forest department to take action.

The implementation of these alternative transport arrangements is anticipated to provide a long-term solution to the problem, ensuring the safety of the sanctuary’s inhabitants and preserving the biodiversity of the region.
