Of otters and conservation, we conversed at length. He then offered to take us with him for the regular run of the sanctuary. It was lovely day and we could clearly see the Agasthyamalai peak and its adjacent peaks. First we visited the Elephant Rehabilitation Centre and were enthralled by the training process and the dedicated forest officials. They bring home elephants who are mishandled by their mahouts and elephants who are disbanded from a herd. We took a tour through the waterways of the Sanctuary on the speedboat.
