Podcast – The Challenges of Caring for Bull Elephants

December 22, 2020 | By dw

Elephant Tails Podcast, Ep11 – Have you ever wondered about the work that goes into caring for a large, injured, physically and emotionally damaged bull elephant? Get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the intensive work Wildlife SOS undertakes to bring a 5,000 kg (11,000 lb) animal to the safety of the Elephant Hospital.

In this episode, Manager for Public Relations and Events, Shirina Sawhney sits down with Wildlife SOS CEO and co-founder Kartick Satyanarayan to discuss the challenges of rescuing and caring for male elephants. Bulls are strong, solitary, and go into musth annually. They can be extremely challenging to rescue and care for day-to-day.

After dozens and dozens of rescues by our experienced teams, every life-saving sortie presents its own unique challenges. Wildlife SOS teams often face hostile mobs, organized crime, tragically abused animals, and long and difficult journeys in the Elephant Ambulance as they bring elephants to the Elephant Conservation and Care Centre for physical and mental healing, and a new life of peace.


In the Elephant Tails Podcast from Wildlife SOS, we bring you the intimate stories and behind-the-scenes perspectives with the people working to save India’s wildlife.
