Main aim of the charity

Wildlife SOS was established in 1995 by a small group of individuals inspired to start a movement and make lasting change to protect and conserve India’s natural heritage, forest and wildlife wealth. Today, the organisation has evolved to actively work 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.

How the employee got involved and why

I found out this from my friend who was volunteering last year, now there was nine of us from Finland. We were there one week volunteering in October.

What work does the employee do for charity?

In Bears, we clean pond areas, build platforms for bears to relax, Elephants, we clean pools and their surraundings, chop fruits, move gras to fields and build activity toys for them. We also saw first elephant hospital build to India.
