Original text on this topic:
On April 1, 1984, five rhinos landed in Dudhwa National Park of U.P., thus becoming the first rhinos to be translocated in India. The translocation was mooted under the National Wildlife Action Plan (which gives priority to the reintroduction of endangered and threatened species).
A number of places were selected for translocating rhinos from Assam. Dudhwa National Park in U.P., Champaran forest in Bihar, Jaldapara and Gorumara Wildlife Sanctuaries in West Bengal, Lah Wildlife Sanctuary in Arunachal Pradesh and Intanki Wildlife Sanctuary in Nagaland.
