The census will take place on April 7 and 8 but the park would remain closed from tomorrow to enable forest officials to make arrangements for the exercise to be conducted under the supervision of Chief Conservator of Forest (Wildlife) S P Singh, a park official said.

Nearly 300 people would be involved in the census work.

There were 2048 rhinos in the park according to the last census conducted in 2009.
