    UntitledIn the second phase of GPS collaring operation of elephants, a female elephant from a herd has been collared in Sarpang making it three elephants to be collared so far. The other two elephants were collared in Samrang village in Jomotsangkha Wildlife Sanctuary in March 2014. In all, it is planned to collar six elephants along the elephant belt in Southern Bhutan, viz. Samtse, Lhamoizingkha, Phibsoo Wildlife Sanctuary, Sarpang, Royal Manas National Park and Samdrup Jongkhar area.
