This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Magazine Features

At a tea plantation bordering Kaziranga National Park, women workers tote freshly picked leaves to be processed. Animals face occasional hazards at the many plantations near the park. Tigers have been secretly poisoned because they prey on cattle. Elephants have become trapped in steep-sided drainage ditches in parts of Assam north of the Brahmaputra.
