Department of Environment and Forest, has endeavored to manage this complex scenario remarkably. In Wildlife we have achieved a tremendous success. The one horned Rhino which was almost extinct in India, with only a dozen left at the turn of last century, now stands restored to scientifically sustainable level. Assam can boast of possessing a host of endangered and rare mammals, avian and amphibian species. These include pigmy hog, hispid hare, white winged wood duck, and great Indian hornbills among many others.
