RE-HAB Project:-

  • The full name of this project is ReHab (Reducing Human Attacks using Honey Bees).
  • On this occasion, he also distributed 330 bee boxes to villagers, bee colonies and toolkits to honey collectors in Chausala village of Nainital.
  • The boxes are connected with a string so that when elephants attempt to pass through, a tug or pull causes the bees to swarm the elephant herds and dissuade them from progressing further.
  •  It is a cost-effective way of reducing human-wild conflicts without causing any harm to the animals.
  • While the Honey Mission is a programme to increase the bee population, honey production and beekeepers’ income by setting up apiaries, Project RE-HAB uses bee boxes as a fence to prevent the elephant attacks.
