Summary: BANDIPUR NATIONAL PARK: The first two days of the 2017 elephant census had been an underwhelming affair for Naveen BN , a techie from bengaluru who volunteered for the exercise at Bandipur National Park . Farmers living and working in villages on the periphery of Bandipur National Park share Madappa's concerns. We have also ensured farmers are compensated quickly for the crop loss. They used to come into the fields once in a while, and feed on crops such as paddy and sugarcane. As the three-day census operation came to an end on Friday, the threat that the tuskers posed to the livelihood of the farmers gave the volunteers much to ponder about.
