Kaziranga - The Rhino Land, is a tribute to the hardworking, duty-conscious, 'do-or-die' staff of the Kaziranga National Park in Assam state of North-East India. The World Heritage Site is a success story of conservation and protection of wildlife. It is a unique success story of revival of a large mammal, which has attracted unscrupulous poachers for its horn.
