It’s flood season – and animals need your help

Kaziranga National Park in Assam, India, is one of the last places on earth where greater one-horned rhinos live. And right now, the park is nearly 85% underwater.

We’re doing everything we can to rescue individual animals and preserve Kaziranga National Park’s wildlife — and this is just the beginning. Will you help us continue our rescue operations and protect animals in the face of danger?

It’s flood season in India — which means for the next few weeks, the people and animals of Assam will face severe monsoons and deadly landslides. Rhinos, tigers, elephants and deer are battling exhaustion as they struggle to fight the raging waters and find higher ground.
During recent search efforts, our team located a greater one-horned rhino calf who had lost her mother and was desperately trying to stay afloat in the flood. Together with Wildlife Trust of India and the Assam Forest Department, we moved the calf to higher ground and transported her to the Centre for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation for treatment. Soon, she will join the other orphaned calves at the center and later return to the wild once she is strong enough.

Our team has already persevered through great challenges, like our 11-hour rescue mission to save a tiger who ventured into a nearby village in search of shelter. But this is only the beginning. In the upcoming weeks, hundreds of animals will urgently need our help. We are racing against the clock to save them. Can we count on you to help us save iconic animals like rhinos, tigers and elephants?
