Meet Sundari, our Bear Of The Month!

November 2022 marks the 17th year of Sundari’s arrival at the Bannerghatta Bear Rescue Centre, and this makes for an opportune time to highlight her journey with Wildlife SOS. The 29-year-old Sloth bear spends a large part of her time gallivanting in her spacious field, digging through the soft mud around her.

Sundari developed osteoarthritis of the hip joint due to the 'dancing' bear practice, where she was made to stand upright on her hindlimbs and perform for prolonged hours. To aid with her pain, our veterinary officers provide her with regular laser therapy sessions, supplements, and medications.

Due to her arthritis, our bear care staff has lowered the enrichment items like logs, tyres, and puzzle feeders for Sundari so that she can access the delicious treats with ease!

Survivor of a traumatic road accident, Bijli was left with a diffused joint and an unsteady gait. She was treated brutally and forced to beg on the streets but a truck collision changed her life drastically. Left in a critical state, she was rescued by the forest department and Wildlife SOS. Bijli was given round-the-clock medical treatment at the Elephant Conservation and Care Centre, and soon enough she began to come out of her shell.

She has now been on the path to recovery with Wildlife SOS for 12 years! She spends hours playing with the cage-feeder enrichment that is placed outside her enclosure and going on long walks with her companions Laxmi and Chanchal. The trio take dust baths together and enjoy splashing around in their jumbo pool during the hot summer months.

This could only be possible thanks to your generosity! Your continued support makes it possible for us to reach out to more elephants like Bijli who might be begging on chaotic streets despite suffering grave injuries.

Meet the Weasleys! They may not have been the protagonists of the Harry Potter franchise, but they are certainly the main characters in our books!

Rescued from wildlife traffickers near the Indo-Nepal border in 2019, Molly, Arthur, Ron, Ginny and Charlie were shifted to the Agra Bear Rescue Facility for long-term care. While we, unfortunately, lost Charlie and Ginny to brief illnesses last year. Molly, Arthur and Ron continue to receive the best possible care from our team, in a safe and peaceful environment.

The three bears are doing quite well now, and they spend their time playing with hammocks and puzzle feeder enrichments or having a treasure hunt in their fields to find the tasty dollops of honey or peanut butter hidden away by their caregivers. They have made remarkable progress in these few years that they have spent with us, and we hope to give them a comfortable life for many more years to come!

We are certain that somewhere over the rainbow bridge, both Ginny and Charlie are also watching over this trio and wishing them a healthy life.

Five years ago, Priyanka was working as a begging elephant — broken and subdued to the point where children would tug at her tail and elicit no response from her. It seems almost unimaginable to think that Priyanka lived such a life, seeing the headstrong and fierce elephant that she is today! Thanks to the humane care and treatment that she received at the Elephant Conservation and Care Centre (ECCC), she is gradually healing from her traumatic past.

Now, Priyanka stands tall and is big on her personal space and privacy. Her physical body also matches her unyielding demeanour, and it is all thanks to the nutritious diet, veterinary treatment and plentiful enrichments that she has received over the last five years.

Read more about Priyanka’s five-year journey with Wildlife SOS at the link in our bio!

Recently, a Small Indian civet was found in an unconscious state in Junnar, Maharashtra. Concerned for its well-being, the Forest Department rushed the animal to the Wildlife SOS Manikdoh Leopard Rescue Centre for medical intervention. After receiving treatment from our veterinary team, the animal made a complete recovery and was ready to return to the wild.

Also known as the Little civet, the Small Indian civet (Vivericula indica) is one of the eight civet species inhabiting India. The animal is nocturnal, solitary, and ground-dwelling.

Watch the video as our team carefully releases the civet in an open field after its complete recovery!
