In 2006, Wildlife SOS intiated a project that would conserve bear habitat in the area of karnataka near Ramdurga. This unique habitat was chosen because of its value to protecting sloth bears. It is ideal because the rocky boulders and a scrub jungle that spreads on undulating hill ranges provide shelter and food for the bears. Read more »

During the monsoon, Jambavant can be found after a heavy downpour, walking along with the mud squishing between his toes. He peers at the ground, waiting for bugs and termites to come up to the surface, and ants too! He enjoys having his fur all wet. For him the Agra Bear Rescue Facility, run by Wildlife SOS, is heaven.

Every bear that comes into our centre has a unique story; one usually filled with trauma and fear. Kaveri’s story was like most other dancing bears, but with so much more pain that it’s a miracle she survived. Despite her painful early years, she has blossomed into a happy bear and flourishes at our rescue centre today.

Everyone has a fond memory of a play ground where the See-Saw never went up or being a daredevil on the jungle gym was necessary to join the cool gang. The reason we were taken to parks as children was not just for our mothers to get some quiet time. It was also to help improve our mental and physical self.

But after almost a year of hiding in a foreign country and avoiding returning to his family in India, the owner ultimately decided to return to India with the intention of surrendering his animal.
