He has been working with our rescued bears, elephants and leopards for the past 12 years. Calm and composed by nature, he is always the first person to be contacted when anyone finds themselves in a fix! Dr. Arun’s calendar is filled with meetings, reviewing of veterinary research proposals, inspections across the states of the veterinary standards of the facilities as well as providing veterinary and surgical advice and training to the team. In his free time, Dr. Arun enjoys reading books and listening to all kinds of music.
