On the basis of information received about the presence of wild elephants numbering around 30 with three calves under Woroko village area jurisdiction in Wokha, Wildlife Division Dimapur organised a training program on mitigation of Human-Elephant conflict at Woroko village council hall on April 3. 

A press release from Wildlife Division Dimapur, wildlife warden, Tokaho H Kinimi stated that the team demonstrated various elephant repelling techniques which included creating fences with ropes and pieces of cloth greased with dried chilly and tobacco powder, lighting blocks of dried chilli to emit strong choking smoke, using catapults to shoot fire-crackers as projectiles etc. to ward off wild elephants from human habitation and plantation areas and fields. 

The team also asked participants to report incidents of damages to crops and property to the wildlife warden, wildlife division, Dimapur. 

The participants were further informed to coordinate with the department and neighbouring villages regarding movements of wild elephants. Elephant repellent materials were also distributed to the villages.
