Catch train drivers who exceed the speed limit, save elephant sign now

In the wake of the recent death of seven elephants who were killed by a speeding train in West Bengal's Jalpaiguri district, PETA sent a letter to Jairam Ramesh, Minister of Environment and Forests, and Mamata Banerjee, Minister of Railways, urging them to appoint an independent third-party agency to use speed-detection guns to catch train drivers who exceed the speed limit.

Recently, PETA successfully demonstrated the effectiveness of an imported speed-detection gun on trains in the elephant corridor near Guwahati. A Divisional Forest Officer (Wildlife) from Guwahati was satisfied by the accuracy and effectiveness of the gun under both daylight and nighttime conditions and considered the device to be extremely effective and valuable in enforcing speed laws.

One hundred fifty elephants have been killed by trains since 1987, and train deaths are thought to be a key threat to Indian elephants. Approximately 25,000 to 27,000 Asian elephants live in India, and they have only 65,000 square kilometres of habitat available to them. Let's join together to prevent these elephants from being hit and killed by speeding trains.

You Can Help
Please ask the Ministry of Railways and the Ministry of Environment and Forests to push for the widespread use of elephant-saving speed guns.
