The Vet Who Is Saving India’s Orphaned Animals

0

For over 16 years now, Dr. Bhaskar Choudhary and his team at the Wildlife Rescue Center in Assam, India, have been working tirelessly to rehabilitate over a thousand orphan and injured wild animals, including elephant and rhino calves, wild buffaloes, tigers, leopards, deer, and birds, and to return to the forest and survive independently. Choudhary also provides information on displaced animals to locals to assist with animal care during natural disasters like floods in the fragile ecosystem of North Eastern India. Despite the countless sleepless nights spent patiently caring for injured or orphaned animals, Choudhary only describes a feeling of gratitude to the animals which have allowed him “to experience life in such miraculous and invaluable ways.”
