Shillong, July 27: India and Bangladesh today decided to constitute a joint working group to evolve standard-operating procedures to facilitate smooth migration of elephants along the border between the two countries and reduce man-animal conflict.

The forest and environment ministry officials from the two countries have decided this during the second Indo-Bangladesh Dialogue on Trans-Boundary Elephant Conservation here today.

Elephants are large mammals of the family Elephantidae and the order Proboscidea. Two species are traditionally recognised, the African elephant (Loxodonta africana) and the Asian elephant (Elephas maximus), although some evidence suggests that African bush elephants and African forest elephants are separate species (L. africana and L. cyclotis respectively). Elephants are scattered throughout sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. Elephantidae is the only surviving family of the order Proboscidea; other, now extinct, members of the order include deinotheres, gomphotheres, mammoths, and mastodons.

A wild Indian elephant that attracted worldwide attention after being swept hundreds of miles down a flood-swollen river into Bangladesh died on Tuesday of a heart attack, Bangladeshi officials said. The animal’s death was brought on by “a long period of stress, heat and humidity,” said Mustafizur Rahman, a veterinary surgeon who supervised the treatment of the elephant last week in northern Bangladesh.
