To commemorate the successful completion of 30 years of Project Elephant and to give more impetus to conservation efforts, the Union Ministry of Environment and Forest has decided to celebrate Gaj Utsav 2023 at Kaziranga National Park on April 7 and 8. 


Union Minister for Environment, Forest and Climate Change Ashwini Kumar Choubey said recently that the Gaj Utsav 2023 celebrations are aimed at rejoicing the nature-culture relationship in India.

He said the State of Assam holds the second largest wild elephant population in India and also has a large number of elephants that are under human care. 


Thus, it is fitting to celebrate Gaj Utsav 2023 at Kaziranga, Assam. India's remarkable efforts towards conservation of biological resources under the umbrella of elephants would also be showcased during the Utsav.


Since people's participation has given more impetus to conservation efforts, the Utsav is intended to bring together the government authorities, local communities, civil societies, NGOs, school children, mahouts etc. Together they will celebrate and display the efforts taken by the Government and other stakeholders for conservation of elephants in the country.
