GUWAHATI – The sun was shining bright on the hilly terrain overlooking Deepor Beel, the Ramsar Site, at the outskirt of Guwahati city. The beaten jungle track on the undulated forested terrain was dotted with elephant droppings here and there indicating the strong presence of pachyderms inside the forest.

Oblivious of the heat and humidity of forenoon of Wednesday, Daryll Pleasants, a proficient dog trainer from the UK, was focused on the job at hand entrusted to him by Aaranyak, the top-line biodiversity conservation and research organization here.

Daryll’s invaluable service has been roped in by Aaranyak to train its pack of Belgian Malinois that constitutes its prized and most sought after K9 brigade, the anti-poaching dog squad that has provided a tremendous lift to anti-poaching apparatus and investigation procedures in Assam where poachers are on the prowl in wildlife protection areas.
