Ban the trade of #elephant skins and other body parts, not just ivory! Ask Sec. @DebHaalandNM to ...please take action to stop or limit the sale in the USA, the world's largest market for these "products." https://www.change.org/elephant-skin
@nytimes It's time for the USA to ban the LEGAL import of elephant trophies, skins and other body ...parts, not just tusks. The USA drives worldwide demand. Thrill-killing of vulnerable wildlife like African elephants is a graphic demonstration of the worst of human behaviour. It must stop.

To provide a more holistic solution, the Chhattisgarh Forest Department and Wildlife SOS installed ...a GPS radio-collar on the matriarch of a wild elephant herd consisting of 22 elephants.
This move enabled us to adopt a multi-prong approach towards conflict mitigation....
An update from the field -
For the past two years #WildlifeSOS, has been running a project on ...human-elephant conflict mitigation in #Chhattisgarh in order to tackle the rising instances of human-elephant conflict in #Mahasamund, an ideal habitat for wild elephants🐘
It is quite a feat to catch sight of either of them, although George has slowly begun to feel more ...friendly towards the public eye.
Happy 2nd Rescueversary, Natalie and George!
Catch a behind-the-scenes exclusive look into the challenges faced during the rescue on the ...exciting six-episode series.
Traumatic as their experience had been, it took both Natalie and George a long while before they became comfortable in their surroundings.
Because survival in the wild was an impossibility without their mother, the decision to being them ...to the #WSOS Leopard Rescue Centre 🐆 in Manikdoh was made.
Their journey was captured on Nat Geo Wild's 'India's Jungle Heroes', alternatively known as 'Jungle Animal Rescue'.
We are celebrating a special occasion today - it's the second rescueversary of our youngest sibling... duo, Natalie and George!
Rescued by #WSOS after a fall down a hundred-foot deep well, the two siblings had lost their mother when she became prey to an adjacent open well.
Wishing everyone a happy #Easter from team Wildlife SOS!
We hope you have a lovely and safe ...celebration with the ones closest to you on this auspicious occasion!
#WildlifeSOS frequently rescues blackbucks from situation of conflict and in case of injuries in ...encounters with feral dogs. In such cases, they require immediate medical treatment.
6. Male blackbucks are strikingly different from their female or juvenile counterparts due to their... black and white colouration in comparison to the reddish colouration of females and juveniles. This contrast is much greater than their other relatives.
4. It can reach speeds up to 80 kmph (or 50 mph) to escape from predators!
5.The most ...recognisable trait of the blackbuck is the spiraling antlers sported by adult males (pictured here) - these can grow up to 24 inches!
2. Blackbuck populations saw a drastic decline in the twentieth century due to excessive hunting, ...habitat degradation and deforestation.
3. This species is protected under Schedule I of the Wildlife Protection Act, 1972, thereby granted the same level of protection as the tiger
The Blackbuck, also known as Indian Antelope, is native to India and Nepal.
Here are some ...interesting facts about the blackbuck!
1. The Blackbuck is now considered regionally extinct in Pakistan and Bangladesh where large populations were formerly recorded.
We receive many calls regarding birds that collapse due to weakness resulting from the heat. ...Putting out water in bowls and planting trees in your gardens are some ways we can safeguard the birds sharing our landscapes!
Thank you @jeepindia for your support!
It's been a busy week for the #WildlifeSOS Rapid Response Team operating out of Agra, UP.
A ...#CrestedSerpentEagle was amongst those rescued by the team. As temperatures soar in northern India, a rising number of birds are falling prey to heat exhaustion and dehydration.
Our gentle girls Chanchal, Bijli and Laxmi enjoy a lovely dip by the riverside as summer makes an ...appearance at the #ElephantConservationandCareCentre (ECCC)
Catch them making the most of their day out in the Yamuna river near #ECCC in Mathura!
This, as we later discovered, was not just for the pleasure of stretching her legs, but also ...finding the best spots for a lie-down on her walk!
On such excursions, Emma's trunk is vital in helping her identify smells, textures and assisting her in her bouts of exploration.
Mid week pick up coming your way!
While on a riverside walk, we caught sight of our adorable Emma... catching her forty winks right on the riverbank. One of the many curious quirks of the pachyderm is her eagerness to go on walks.
Today, Kalpana's life is a far cry from her neglected beginnings. Her herd now consists of Holly ...and Karma, both rescued from similar pasts of neglect and abuse.
Read more about our Elephant of the Month here: https://wildlifesos.org/chronological-news/elephant-of-the-month-kalpana/
... left the glaring limp that compromised her gait and the scars on her forehead leftover from ...regular axe beatings went unnoticed for years.
Owing to her previous experiences, Kalpana stepped into her new life at #WSOS with utmost cautiousness.
Kalpana, like many other ceremonial elephants, spent a large part of her day walking on blazing ...tarmac roads, people seeking 'blessings' from her. Nobody's eyes reached beneath her ceremonial garb - the milky white layer in her eyes that clouded her vision......
Two Rat snakes created quite the stir inside the #Runakta Police Station in #Agra. The snakes were ...rescued by the #WildlifeSOS Rapid Response Unit and later released back into their natural habitat.
After sniffing around carefully, she instantly bounded up the structure and spent the rest of the ...day discovering every nook and cranny the hut had to offer!
Knowing Leena's love for food, he made sure that the hut contained a swinging ball covered with ...honey and stuffed with dates and coconut shavings.
One look at the hut and Leena was off to explore in a jiffy!
We wanted to surprise our bear Leena, residing at the Agra Bear Rescue Facility, ...with a lovely new bamboo hut to explore! The hut was designed by her caretaker and erected in her enclosure.
The mother must have been looking for her cubs because she arrived on the spot within twenty ...minutes. We can only imagine her relief on finding them safe and sound!
We arranged for the young leopards to be returned to the field so that the mother could find her ...cubs. This involved the installation of remote-controlled camera traps in the field to document the reunion process, while we monitored the area from a safe distance.
Local villagers noticed the cub while harvesting sugarcane and immediately raised the alarm. We ...dispatched a team from the #WSOS #LeopardRescueCentre with the requisite equipment to answer the call of aid. A thorough check-up found the cubs healthy and fit for release.
It's cub season in Maharashtra!
Two forty-five day old cubs, found in a sugar cane farm in #Ozar ...village of #Junnar district, #Maharashtra, were rescued and reunited with their mother in a successful operation by #WildlifeSOS and the Forest Department.
We organised the plantation drive to help raise awareness about this issue. The volunteers ...participated in routine enclosure cleaning, bear kitchen activities, fruit enrichment preparation and plantation of several local tree species found in the Bannerghatta National Park.
Celebrating #InternationalDayofForests at the #WildlifeSOS Bannerghatta Bear Rescue Centre! A group... of 11 volunteers from Indian multinational technology company @Infosys joined us to celebrate this occasion with a plantation drive.

Join us for a free webinar featuring a powerhouse at Wildlife SOS - ...Program Manager, Jammu & Kashmir - Aaliya Mir as she talks about our conservation program in Jammu & Kashmir.
Over twenty species of migratory waterbirds were observed by the #WSOS team.
Learn more about how ...this massive collection of data by thousands of participants from across the world is collated to form a cohesive report on our blog here: https://wildlifesos.org/chronological-news/wsos-asian-waterbird-census-2021/
The data gathered from this exercise is crucial towards developing conservation strategies.
Our ...team operating out of Jammu & Kashmir, led by Program Coordinator Aaliya Mir, assessed the area of #Wular lake, one of the largest freshwater lakes in Asia for #AWC2021
#Waterbirds are the most important indicator of the health of wetlands, as the number and species ...of waterbirds indicate habitat quality. #AWC is a cost-effective way to monitor regional population trends and helps determine the quality of and identify wetlands of high importance
The #AsianWaterbirdCensus is an annual citizen-science event that takes place from January to ...March. This effort is an integral part of the global waterbird monitoring programme – the International Waterbird Census (IWC).
With spring is in the air, Ranjan is eager to enjoy as much time as possible in the open, ...preferably snoozing under the thick canopy of green when not engaged in mock wrestles with his companion Leena!
An explorer at heart, Ranjan enjoys digging pits in his enclosure, pausing when he catches a whiff ...of his favorite honey laced porridge. He has a special weakness for grapes 🍇, which he likes plucking one by one to savour at a leisurely pace!
This is how we like seeing Ranjan - perched atop his bamboo enrichment or on the curved branches of... his favourite tree 🌳, busy identifying the many smells pervading the air at the #AgraBearRescueFacility with his snout in the air!
This particular peafowl was brought in for treatment of an ear infection at the Leopard Rescue ...Centre. After its successful treatment, the peafowl was kept under observation by #WSOS vets at the centre for a few days before being released back into its natural habitat.
Did you know that peafowl feathers are covered with tiny crystal like structures that reflect ...different wavelengths of colours depending on how they're spaced, thus resulting in the bright fluorescent colours we see?
The brighter the display, the better the chance of catching a peahen's eye! The peahens are not as ...brightly coloured as the males so that they can camouflage themselves and their chicks from predators better.
It's all about the colours!
Quite apart from being the national bird of India, peafowls are quite an interesting ...species.
The peacock - which is a male peafowl - sports an iridescent train of feathers that is covered in 'ocelli', the round spots that look like shining eyes.
We're incredibly glad that Emma is discovering the joys of companionship, albeit with measured ...footsteps. We can imagine her apprehension after a lifetime of abuse and neglect, and yet, her gentle and curious disposition has given us hope for brighter days forward.
We've been keen to observe their interaction, and to our pleasure, have noticed that the three are ...quite cordial with each other. They stand close to each other, communicating in gentle rumbles. While on walks, she trails behind, with Maya & Phoolkali leading the way.
She's shown a particular proclivity for cauliflower and cabbage, both of which are a part of her ...daily diet.
Recently, she was introduced to our resident best friend duo Maya & Phoolkali as a part of her socialisation process.
An update on Emma:
Emma the elephant is doing well with the transition into her new life. She's ...developed into a calm, sweet elephant who quite enjoys the stalks of sweet sugarcane laid out for her in the mounds of mud scattering her enclosure.
The webinar will be moderated by Dr Arun A Sha, Director of Research and Veterinary Operations at ...#WSOS with Dr AB Shrivastav - Former Director at School of Wildlife Forensics and Health, NDVSU, Jabalpur sharing his expertise.

These birds spend a lot of time soaring and gliding in thermals in search of food such as reptiles,... amphibians and other small mammals and birds.
The medium-sized bird of prey is thought to be the world’s most abundant species of Accipitridae,... although some populations have experienced dramatic declines or fluctuations due to habitat destruction, loss of prey base and poisoning from agricultural pesticides.
A #BlackKite escaped a narrow brush with death after collapsing on the metro tracks at the Mayur ...Vihar Phase-1 Metro station earlier this week. The bird was rescued by the #WildlifeSOS Rapid Response Unit and is currently under observation.
What are you doing to celebrate the special women in your life today? Let us know in the comments ...section below!
...to treating sick and injured animals on a daily basis and handling communications and accounts, ...women are a very integral part of our organisation. Without them, we would be utterly lost.
"Where there is woman, there is magic," And we find that we agree wholeheartedly with this ...statement.
This #WomensDay we are celebrating the women who help run #WildlifeSOS - from rescuing animals, designing our collateral & educating the public via awareness programmes....
An adult male #Nilgai (Blue Bull) was rescued by #WildlifeSOS which had fallen in a 20-foot-deep ...open borewell in Devseras village located in Goverdhan, #Mathura. After conducting on-site medical examination, the animal was released back into the wild.
This is why events like #WorldWildlifeDay are important - to talk about the mass extinction ...threatening the planet and to spread a conscience message. Read more about what we did to celebrate on our blog below.
Conservation organizations around the world are working towards protecting & safeguarding ...wildlife populations. We are trying our best to save as many lives as we can and as fast as we can.
The Bengal Tiger, Indian Pangolin, Star Tortoise, Asiatic Lion and Asian Elephant are all among the... most well known species threatened by extinction, alongside more than a million others.
Does this scare you? We know it terrifies us.
But there's good news.
The theme for this year was ‘Forests and Livelihoods: Sustaining People and Planet'.
Today, ...more than one million species are on the brink of being wiped out; the sizes of wildlife populations have dropped by two-thirds since 1970!
#WorldWildlifeDay isa day to celebrate the wealth of biodiversity on our planet. Every year, ...conservationists, government bodies & wildlife enthusiasts come together to celebrate the beauty of our natural heritage and raise awareness about the many factors threatening animals.

One of the most beautiful elephants under our care, Phoolkali today completed 9 years of freedom with us. She is everyone's favorite and emanates and personifies grace in every way - whether it is the measured steps she takes in her long walks or the delightful splashes in the Yamuna river.
Recently, Phoolkali and Maya, welcomed Emma to their herd and Phoolkali was the first one to bond with her. On their long walks to the riverside, Phoolkali can be seen comforting Emma with affectionate trunk hugs and gentle rumbles.
We feel pride to have Phoolkali a part of the Wildlife SOS family for 9 years now! Celebrating her strength and her serenity today. Thank you for being a part of her journey....
Cobra rescued from a house in Delhi. A panic-stricken resident from a South Delhi locality informed the #WildlifeSOS Rapid Response Unit regarding a highly venomous Cobra in their driveway.
A two member team was dispatched right away as the caller was most concerned for the safety of their dogs who occupied the same space.
The snake was carefully extricated, placed in a carrier and later released into the wild.
Thank you @jeepindia for enabling us to carry out such critical rescue operations with so much ease!...
Leopard cub reunions - Mother’s Day special. During the harvest season in Maharashtra, farmers find more than just sugarcane in
the fields—they also find little leopard cubs! As it turns out, female leopards rely heavily on the tall sugarcane crops to shield their offspring from predators and human intervention.
This year,the Wildlife SOS team operating out of the Leopard Rescue Centre in Junnar successfully reunited 15 leopard cubs with their mothers over the course of the harvest season.
On the delightful occasion of #MothersDay, we celebrate these wonderful mothers, who returned hearing her cubs in distress, and took them away to a safe place. These family reunions turn a crucial page in conservation as these leopard cubs grow up to be strong, stunning leopards continuing the survival of their species.
We compiled a video of all these heartwarming family reunions to bring a smile to your face as you all stay protected in your homes, in these difficult times....
A classic example highlighting conservation of biodiversity, especially today, on #WorldMigratoryBirdDay, a juvenile Greater Flamingo bird was rescued, treated and successfully relocated amongst a resident flock of flamingos in Keetham lake located inside the Soor Sarovar Bird Sanctuary in Agra.
The bird was brought to the Wildlife SOS Animal Hospital by the forest department officials for urgent medical treatment.
The bird had injuries on both wings and was treated for the same by the Wildlife SOS veterinarians.
We wanted the bird to be successfully released in the wild and therefore, identified a flock of flamingos in Keetham Wetlands.
Greater flamingos are the largest & most widespread flamingo species & they live in flocks called colonies to protect individual birds from predators.

All heroes don't wear capes - for us, they don green 🟢 veterinary scrubs and spend every day saving the lives of those in need! Known as veterinarians to the world, these men and women are our 'wildlife heroes'!
There are many challenges faced by veterinarians on a daily basis - long hours in various unpredictable circumstances, engaging with crowds in conflict situations and providing life saving treatment to an injured and distressed wild animal are just some of the aspects of their job roles. They're also deeply involved in imparting rehabilitative and palliative care to the animals residing at the Wildlife SOS rescue centres.
On World Veterinary Day, we'd like to express our gratitude for these courageous and selfless individuals who are some of the most essential components of Wildlife SOS!

| Celebrating Ganesh's 10th Rescueversary |. We love rescueversaries at Wildlife SOS for the simple reason that they are a celebration of joy, freedom and also great success stories of rehabilitation!
Our wonderful leopard Ganesh has just completed ten years under our care and we couldn't be happier! Rescued from a horrifying situation of conflict, Ganesh is completely blind, relying on his sense of smell and hearing and the companionship of his dearest friend Vitthal to navigate through his daily routine.

| The importance of Earth Day in today's world |
Man's avarice and greed has steadily destabilised our planet's subtle balance - rapid urbanisation, the mutilation of large, pristine ecosystems and poaching are some of the biggest issues threatening all wildlife populations. The results of this unmitigated development can be seen through the effect of diseases like Covid-19 pandemic that has emerged from the illegal consumption of exotic meat.
This year, the theme for 'Earth Day' is 'restoring our earth'. In the face of such widespread chaos, the responsibility of restoring the health of our planet is indeed massive; it requires all our concerted efforts, regardless of country, gender, ethnicity or political beliefs. In today's times, it is even more important to put forward a united foot while dealing with the environmental crisis we are faced with.
On behalf of team Wildlife SOS, we hope this 'Earth Day' is spent, safe and sound, while surrounded by your loved ones!

"When you think all is lost, when all is dire & bleak, there is always hope."
In these tough times, hope is the most important thing we need to survive. Keep your loved ones close and we hope you stay safe in the face of the adversity of the Covid-19 pandemic.
In the meantime, we'll leave you with a heartwarming picture of this two-month-old leopard that was rescued from a village in the Otur forest range of Maharashtra and successfully reunited with its mother later that very day!
