Elephants and other wild animals are being protected in India by protective barricades around open wells in reserve and revenue forest.
This is because the animals were falling into wells.
After a survey of the wells, they were nearly all found to be abandoned and unsafe for wild animals.
Reports suggest there are about 360 such abandoned wells in the reserve and revenue forest.
Rescuing the trapped elephants was an enormous task which took several hours to do, so the Dhenkanal Forest division has taken steps to stop this happening and to prevent elephants and other wild animals from falling into them in the first place.
