The IFAW-WTI-Assam Forest Department Center for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation is protecting animals in Kaziranga National Park from the dangers of human disruption.
Kaziranga National Park is a tiger reserve and UNESCO world natural heritage site located in Assam, India. The park is home to 35 species of mammals and 500 species of birds. Asian Highway 1 (National Highway 715) runs nearby the park.
As species follow their migration paths and search for higher ground during annual floods, animals like the hog deer, water buffalo, Asian elephants, and rhinoceros are forced to cross the road, dodging cars and trucks as they do. Many die. And even more become separated from their families or herds.
Together with the Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) and in collaboration with Assam Forest Department, we operate the IFAW-WTI Center for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation to stop this deadly trend.
It’s the only facility in India that rescues, hand-raises, and rehabilitates animals such as the one-horned rhinoceros and Asian elephant.
