I have been interested in animal welfare for a long time now. I still remember visiting Agra in 2002 and being deeply disturbed by the sight and plight of the dancing bears lining the road between Delhi and Agra. I was desperate to do something but had no idea where to start, so imagine my delight at discovering WSOS and the initiative to rescue the dancing bears in India. I had the pleasure of visiting their sanctuary in Bangalore in 2006 and given a complete tour by Dr. Arun. It is such a safe and fantastic haven for the poor animals and I salute all those involved in this initiative. What struck me most was that the people who make these bears dance are just as reluctant to see them suffer, but see no other options to earn a livelihood. Wildlife SOS has a wonderful strategy in tackling the root of the problem - they have trained these people so they can either set up and run small businesses or continue to work with the bears, this time for their absolute welfare. This has made all the difference in tackling this issue and rescuing the bears.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing lots of happy bears enjoying their safe and comfortable haven. It was just before feeding time when I visited and a delight to see lots of bears making their way to the main building to get fed!

Kartick and Geeta have dedicated their lives to save the dancing bears (sloth bears) and the other animals of India. Their dedication and love for animals shines through in all of their work. They started WSOS with a goal to save all of the dancing bears by 2010. So far, in just 7 years they have saved 525. I have been infused with new hope and optimism by their results. And, their actions have inspired me to become fully involved in saving these bears.

I worked at Wildlife SOS as an intern at their Delhi office for 3 months. The amount of ambition in this organisation is astounding. Wildlife SOS already has several animal sancturaries around India saving every type of animal imaginable, ranging from birds, bears, cows, horses, snakes, leopards, bats, monkeys, and elephants. Their work involes a co-ordination of sting operations and informats for wildlife injustices, 24hr rescue hotlines, running several animal sancturaries and education for children and adults alike.

Incredibly friendly and dedicated.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

end the legeacy of the dancing bears in India, and establish wildlife rescue hotlines in many more cities in India.

I found WildlifeSOS on Twitter. I am now following them. They Tweet the plight of the abused, disadvantaged & neglected wildlife as if each were their own. Compassion is shown with each message they Tweet. Individual animals are addressed and success and loss is shared with the Tweeter World. They are Educators and Saviors of the Animal Kingdom. Thank You Wildlife SOS for showing the world compassion and love for the animal kingdom. Without the wildlife, our world would never be the same. "Silence" would be the Sound of the Wild.

I've worked in animal welfare for the last decade, and have never been so impressed as I was the first time I visited India and saw the work of Wildlife SOS. Their dedication is unparalleled, and they achieve so much with so few resources.

I have always felt deeply about wildlife conservation, environment protection and animal welfare but didnt find much opportunity to do something about it. But a chance meeting with Geeta Seshamani in 1998 got me involved with her work and now for the last 11 years, volunteering with Wildlife SOS (WSOS) as well as my capacity as a donor, has made me do substantial amount of constructive work towards the cause that is closest to my heart. They have a brilliant team of field workers, who are expertly trained and very passionate about the cause. There is never a moment in time when WSOS is not on the field rescuing endangered indegenious species, preserving habitat, saving lives, providing alternate employment to poaching communities. I volunteer for them time to time mostly on backend support. I also donate and coordinate with my peer for donations etc. I think WSOS is an extremely efficient organization in their field and need all the support they can get. I would go as far as to say that I think Wildlife SOS is the only hope for Indian wildlife.
