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
We are thankful for your support.
