A man with a lot of compassion for big wild cats, Mahendra Dhore is our Veterinary Assistant based at the Manikdoh Leopard Rescue Center. A former employee of the Forest Department and Rescue Center, Dhore worked as a volunteer for 2 years before joining the Wildlife SOS family in 2009. He has rescued many leopards, hyenas and Sambar deer during anti-poaching drives. He shares a special bond with Michael, one of our rescued leopards at MLRC. His hobbies include travelling to snow-caped mountains and valleys.
