Rishikesh (U'khand), Oct 22 (PTI) All-terrain vehicles, captive elephants and drone cameras are being used in the tourist zones of the Corbett Tiger Reserve and other forest roads in rain-ravaged Uttarakhand for the safety of wildlife.

With a number of forest roads in the core area of the reserve damaged in the recent downpour, two all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), 14 captive elephants and drone cameras are being used for the safety of the wildlife, she added.

Of the 101.57 km of roads built this month for the next tourist season in the Bijrani and Garjia zones of the tiger reserve, 87.57 km has been washed away in the three-day spell of heavy rains in Uttarakhand, deputy director of the park Kalyani Negi said.
