There are plenty of causes to care about in today’s world but not many gravitate towards wildlife conservation. It is a tough path to navigate – to provide quality care to abused or wounded animals despite having to traverse a rocky road filled with bureaucratic challenges and resource constraints. But there are those multitudes that are passionate about saving our wildlife – more than 200 wildlife conservationists, veterinarians, zoo managers and biologists from across the globe met up at the Centre for Cellular & Molecular Biology (CCMB) to talk about the importance of advanced veterinary care for wild animals.

The topic of the international conference was ‘Advances in Veterinary Sciences for Wildlife Conservation’ with talks from experts in the field, over a span of three days from November 13-15. The conference was meant to strengthen scientific collaborations on national and international levels in order to achieve better results for conservation purposes. Ten speakers representing six nations addressed the gathering on topics showcasing the latest advances made in the field of veterinary research, in management of endangered wildlife species. The conference also covered broader research aspects such as wildlife health, zoo biology and reproductive technologies.

The CCMB conference in Hyderabad was attended by Kartick Satyanarayan, CEO & co-founder of Wildlife SOS along with our team of veterinary experts. Mr Satyanarayan was one of the experts giving a talk on the topic of advances in veterinary medicine. He spoke about the NGO’s advances in veterinary research and new advances in wildlife conservation.

He took this opportunity to highlight the work that Wildlife SOS has been doing and to spread awareness about the life saving practices employed by Wildlife SOS vets to provide a new lease of life to abused animals. He also spoke about the importance of advance medicine in elongating the lives of animals under captive care and the geriatric care for elephants and bears that Wildlife SOS provides. He went on to elaborate on the key aspects of India’s first Elephant Hospital.

The Hospital is designed to treat injured, sick or geriatric elephants and is equipped with a medical hoist for lifting elephants requiring critical care, a pathology laboratory, digital weighing scale, Elephant Restraining Device (ERD) with a dedicated indoor treatment enclosure for longer medical procedures. Our team also organizes training courses to spread knowledge on elephant medical care, humane elephant management and veterinary procedures.

Wildlife SOS is one of the few conservation bodies in India that is so highly equipped to deal with the needs of animals that stumbled into the path of human avarice and apathy.  Mr Satyanarayan, at the conference, explained how the NGO had worked tirelessly to achieve these goals and how it is looking at more ways to improve on the existing infrastructure. He also opined that this is the time to speak out for those who can’t speak for themselves and to provide quality care for them.
