This young #elephant was found wandering alone at NorthBank #AssamForestDepartment. An older 'kumki' elephant guided it #BackToTheWild in Behali RF. See this thread & follow us for all updates on our work during #AssamFloods #WildlifeRescues @vivek4wild @HCL_Foundation
Hog deer are the biggest casualties each year in #Kaziranga #AssamFloods. Here our vets @samshulwildvet & @panjitbasu13 treat deer before releasing them #BackToTheWild but distressing to see many cases brought dead due to speeding vehicle hits. Highway closed=safer crossing. +
The rescued #rhino is stabilising at our #wildliferescue centre #CWRC at #Kaziranga #AssamFloods +
2nd baby #rhino separated from its mother was rescued fm a house by @wti_org_india @action4ifaw @kaziranga_ #AssamForestDepartment & brought to #CWRC. This partnership of 18+years has rescued > 5500 animals fm distress. @vivek4wild @AzzedineTDownes @deespeak
This baby rhino in a backyard behind the bushes had to be tranquilised by our vet @samshulwildvet before it could be rescued from the water and Brough to #CWRC #Kaziranga #AssamFloods
Proud of our team @wti_org_india @action4ifaw working with @kaziranga_ to #savewildlife
A good shower after being pulled out of flood waters, veterinarian to examine for injuries and a time for stablisation at the #wildliferescue centre #CWRC run by @wti_org_india and @action4ifaw with #AssamForestDepartment
Life of a rescued #babyrhino #Kaziranga #AssamFloods
Waters receding after 95% submergence of #Kaziranga led to large mammals needing rescue. Two baby #rhinos are admitted to #CWRC. We work with @kaziranga_ and @action4ifaw to rescue, rehabilitate & send #wildlife #BackToTheWild.
#JustIn our vet @samshulwildvet is making plans with #AssamForestDepartment @kaziranga_ to tranquilise a #tiger that has entered a house and is relaxing on a bed! #AssamFloods bring in unusual guests! #Kaziranga Zoom in to see #OMG wish them luck! @action4ifaw @deespeak
Our vet @samshulwildvet is on a mission to tranquilise this #tiger to get him out of bed! Anyone else see the irony? 😆 #AssamFlood #Kaziranga ☝this thread is all abput good work done @vivek4wild
@action4ifaw @VishalDadlani @deespeak @_AdilHussain @DevrajSanyal +
A Billion Choices says the bag but this #tiger chooses bed n breakfast to escape #AssamFloods. Our team @wti_org_india @action4ifaw with @kaziranga_ working to ensure safe passage to the #forest #Kaziranga @vivek4wild @AzzedineTDownes +
The #tiger was spotted nxt to the highway at 8:30 am, moving fm the park, just 200 m away, on its way to Karbi hills abt 500 m across the National highway. Probably disturbed, he jumped across the wall of a scrap garage & took refuge in the dark room. #AssamFloods #Kaziranga +
This is a dhaba across the house where the #tiger is sheltered. It has to traverse this stretch of the road and dhaba to reach the forest you see behind. Highways and settlements block the animals' #RightOfPassage. @vivek4wild @action4ifaw @AzzedineTDownes @deespeak #AssamFloods
A shout out to new followers and those following our #AssamFloods #Kaziranga updates, our team is on location w @kaziranga_ & will #waituntildark to give the #tiger a safe passage from the house to the forest. @fayedsouza @protectwildlife @bahardutt @prernabindra
As the sun goes down, our team with @kaziranga_ prepares to block the highway and clear the area to provide a safe passage to the tiger. Fingers crossed! #AssamFloods #Kaziranga @vivek4wild @action4ifaw
A difficult operation that needed utmost patience & co-ordination by @kaziranga_ #AssamForestDepartment, our veterinary team & local people. The story doesn't end here. As flooding intensifies each year, education, awareness of people & preparedness of ground staff is critical.
Thank you @fayedsouza and @MirrorNow for helping #AssamFloods reach a wide audience! #Kaziranga needs all the help we can muster
