Amitabh, the blind bear, rings the bell in time for the holiday season. Of course, more than ready to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. The handicapped animal lives in an enclosure at the Abra Bear Rescue Facility.
The program is part of the Wildlife SOS advocacy project with main ‘operations’ in India. The organisation has evolved to actively working towards protecting Indian wildlife, conserving habitat, studying biodiversity, conducting research and creating alternative and sustainable livelihoods for erstwhile poacher communities or those communities that depend on wildlife for sustenance.
Wildlife SOS is responsible for taking action against animal cruelty, rescuing wildlife in distress, working to resolve man-animal conflicts while promoting and educating the public about the need for habitat protection.
Believing in their advocacy, we follow some of the endangered animals in the facility in future updates.
