Latest Update


Natural disasters occur commonly in certain parts of India. They impact the lives of millions of humans and animals. During such disasters, the animals are often displaced from their habitats by being carried away by the flood water or due to the destruction of their home by natural forces. When removed from their original home ranges, animals may become vulnerable to other dangers such as predation by feral dogs or vehicular traffic on the roads.

Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) recognizes the gravity of these issues. Holistic conservation of animals through the collaboration of locals and government bodies is a notion centric to the ideologies of WTI. During disasters, WTI deploys teams that work in cohorts with the forest departments and locals to ensure the welfare of individual animals that are affected. The on-ground team assesses the disasters while the headquarter staff provides logistical support. WTI has a volunteer network dispersed across India that plays a crucial role in the disaster-hit regions. Relief is also provided by WTI in disasters through the deployment of animal rescue teams (for domestic and wild animals), fodder support for livestock and vaccination camps post disaster for livestock to avoid the spread of diseases. 

This year, WTI has responded to 3 floods collectively in Assam, Bihar and Arunachal Pradesh.

The Kaziranga landscape in Assam if flooded annually in the monsoon due to inundation the floodplain of the Brahmaputra river. In July, the flood immerse over 85% of the Kaziranga National Park. WTI deployed its mobile veterinary units in service of the animals that were stranded. In collaboration with the Assam Forest Department, WTI saved over 5 rhino calves from the flood waters, along with over 80 hog deers.

In Arunachal Pradesh, two rivers in Pasighat region flooded numerous villages. WTI provided disaster relief to the domestic livestock through fodder support and medicinal supplies.

In Bihar, numerous rivers form the catchment area as they bring the snow melt-off from the Himalayas. This year, the flood was worse due to the dam breach in Nepal, which lead to a second wave. WTI deployed a team for the assessment and response. Livestock was given dry fodder support through concentrates.

Through such efforts, WTI shall strive to provide a relief response to every disaster-hit region, and eventually ensure that each animal impacted that WTI comes across is given the welfare it deserves.

Story


As heavy rains lashed the states of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Bihar in India this July, significant areas were flooded. The major rivers like Brahmaputra and Kosi that provide reliance to millions, swelled up and inundated their banks, gravely impacting hundreds of animals, both wild and domestic.


While the news of flood ravaged landscapes has had a global outreach, there are many other disasters that wildlife faces regularly.


To respond to all distress faced by wildlife including the current floods, Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) provides relief to help animals. We work towards ensuring them to be safe in the wild and are setting up an Emergency Fund that will fund all the actions required to assist animals in distress and provide relief to their unprecedented suffering. The time is NOW to step up and as required, respond to wildlife threats. Your donation will go a big way in reaching our goal.


We have always believed in the power of the people coming together with small support. We know and trust that people like you can donate for the cause of wildlife distress as they loom larger NOW. Please share the fundraiser with your friends and family and help us reach our goal.


Following is the fund breakup:

Rs. 3000 provides for a day’s veterinary care for minor wildlife hurt in natural or man-made calamity.

Rs 5000 helps a trained villager maintain 1 km of forest patch free of traps and snares that harm wildlife

Rs 15,000 can provide for the rescue and complete rehabilitation of one distressed wild animal

Rs 30,000 help procure a set of camera trap and GPS unit to monitor a critically endangered species

Rs 1 lakh supports complete care for one orphaned elephant/rhino calf for a month
