Bengal Forest Department sets up toll-free number for assisting help in rescuing wild animals

Often it happens that wild animals enter localities, and then they have to be sent back into forests.

It is the Forest Department which is tasked with this work.

Then, poaching forms a major threat to the existence of many wild fauna.

The State Forest Department, naturally, is seized of the issues, and so is constantly on the lookout for ways and means to counter these in a firm manner.

As a step towards that, the Department has started a 24-hour toll-free helpline to enable people to contact its personnel regarding any concern related to the wild denizens of Bengal.

After being intimated of any issue, the Forest Department would take adequate steps.

The helpline consists of three numbers – one landline number and two mobile numbers: 033 23340234, 9073237918, 9073237918.
