Birds are spectacular animals that have evolved to rule the sky across every continent. Their uniqueness, diversity, and biology demand special care in treatment and management. Keeping this in mind, Wildlife SOS is organising an online webinar on "Caring For Birds - Basic Management Of Wild Birds And Nestlings."

Conducted by Dr. Adhithyan N.K, Wildlife Veterinary Officer, the session will provide you with a unique perspective into the management and care of wild rescued birds from the nestling stage to an adult, especially in the case of emergencies.

Date and time: 28 January 2022 (Friday), 05:30 PM IST
Platform: Zoom
Free registration at the link in bio.

Rescued from a life of misery in 2015, Asha entered the Elephant Conservation & Care Centre with a sense of belonging. Nearly six years later, our ever-shining ray of hope, Asha (meaning hope in Hindi), bid us farewell.

A place that once reverberated with her loud trumpets and the laughter of her caregiver, Babu Lal, suddenly fell silent. It's as if she took a piece of all our hearts with her. What remains now is the pivotal lesson of unconditional love that she left behind.

As Babu Lal, Suzy, and our entire team take time to grieve, we ask you all to remember Asha as the fierce, matriarchal, jovial elephant she was. The story of Asha’s life is, in fact, not about what we were able to give her, but about what she gave us – kindness, love, and hope.

It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of Asha. An integral and beloved member of our family, Asha passed away in her sleep, taking with her a little piece of all our hearts.

Fondly known as our ray of hope, Asha, has been a beacon of joy for many around her, specifically for her companion Suzy. She enlivened our Elephant Conservation Care Centre with her carefree spirit. With Asha gone, our entire team is overcome with grief.

A life so beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered. We will be providing more information on Asha tomorrow and will be posting her commemoration soon. For now, we ask you to keep Asha in your thoughts and light a candle in honor and memory of a special elephant who was very dear to all of us.

Nina's chronic arthritis condition still persists. Though she is able to stand upright and without the support of a crane, her limbs are still weak. She has a visible limp to her walk due to the bone degeneration in her limbs. Though her condition has not worsened, there isn't much visible improvement.

Hence, the veterinary team as well as the elephant caregivers are regularly keeping an eye on Nina. They continue to monitor her 24/7 and make sure to keep an eye on her throughout the night.

Nina is apprehensive about lying down to sleep, as she finds herself unable to get up on her own. The crane is stationed in stand by, in case Nina decides to lie down. She is leaning on her trunk for support due to the pain in her limbs. For additional support, our elephant care staff has also built mud beds in her enclosure.

The vets are administering her oral medications and painkillers to relieve her pain. She is also continuing to undergo laser therapy treatments.

India’s most prominent harvest festival, Makar Sankranti marks the end of the winter season while welcoming longer and warmer days. People all over the country honour the Sun God with seasonal celebrations during this auspicious festival. However, the festivities aren't celebratory for all.

In many parts, the day turns into a disaster for the avian life. When thousands of kites soar the sky, thousands of birds fall to the ground, left bloodied and quivering. From large birds to the tiniest being, glass-coated manjha spares none. The use of the deadly string continues despite the ban and endless awareness efforts.

To rescue and treat the injured birds as aftermath, Wildlife SOS collaborated with @eco_rescuers_foundation and set up a 3-day bird treatment camp in the heart of Rajasthan, Jaipur. Our team aided over 55 birds who suffered from life-threatening injuries. Watch as our Veterinary Officer, Dr. Lalit Jangid talks about the medical treatment offered to the affected birds. We thank you all for your constant support that allows us to rescue and conserve the Indian wildlife.

When it comes to posing for photographs, our resident bear, Julie, has all the tricks right up her sleeve. Today, our beloved Asiatic Black Bear enjoys her peaceful, friendly time at the Dachigam Rescue Centre in Jammu and Kashmir. She has come a long way from being abandoned by her mother in the backyard of a house due to human-wildlife conflict.

From being rescued by the Wildlife SOS team in 2007 from a town in Kashmir, we have recognised her undying love for sweet, sugary dates. On a typical day, Julie loves to climb trees in her enclosure and finds the perfect enrichment to devour.

Over the years, bear species have increasingly fallen victim to conflict situations in Jammu & Kashmir due to large-scale deforestation and poaching. Our Project involves working with local communities and sensitising them to increase tolerance and encouraging coexistence with these beautiful bears in a shared landscape.

The snores of our beloved elephants at Wildlife SOS echo all around as they sleep comfortably in their enclosures. Our Education and Conservation Officer, Shivam Rai, takes us on a walk around the enclosures while our rescued elephants catch some Zs.

It warms our hearts to see that they feel comfortable enough to sleep in our presence. Many a times, the newly rescued elephants do not lie down to sleep in the first few days due to the unfamiliar surroundings and change in their routine. However, over time, they come to trust their caregivers and the staff at Wildlife SOS and start sleeping through the whole night.

Many of the disabled elephants who cannot fully lie down are also made comfortable here with the help of mud piles, gunny bags and soft blankets!

We are really thankful to see them finally get a good night's rest and hear their snores of freedom!
