I visited the Wildlife S.O.S Bear & Elephant Rescue & Care Centre’s in Agra on March 28th 2014. I felt humbled & privileged to visit both places, as the incredible amount of hard work, dedication, effort & love that have been put in by Wildlife S.O.S to secure & care for both species is obvious as soon as you step...

During our recent trip to India, my 10 year old son and I were fortunate enough to be able to visit the Wildlife SOS Bear Sanctuary near Agra where we were able to meet some of the rehabilitated sloth bears and learn first hand how the Wildlife SOS has successfully ended the barbaric practice of "dancing bears" in India.

I had planned to go here months before. I was time limited but Prat made me very welcome and gave me a tour around this beautiful rescue centre. Hearing what these lovely animals got put through is upsetting but it has to be heard in order for it to change. The bears are all safe now and will live their... More

Our trip to Wildlife SOS was a highlight of our trip to India. We visited Elephant Haven and learned about the work that Wildlife SOS does to rescue bears and elephants from horrible situations. We were also able to feed the elephants, which is such an incredible experience. Wildlife SOS really rolled out the red carpet for our group. It's... More

This is about an hour from the main tourist spots in Agra (in the direction of Delhi) and worth a visit if you care about wildlife. You can see rescued bears, hear their story, and learn about the excellent work this organization is doing to help them. The facility is also located on a bird sanctuary park, so you can... More

We arranged for a tour and were met by Prat once we arrived at the facility. It was fascinating to learn about the history of the sloth bear and to see the care with which the facility nurtures them back. We really enjoyed the visit and would highly recommend spending a few hours there.

Words cannot do wildlife sos justice, it's adventure, emotions, thrill and beauty simply has to be seen to be appreciated.

I recently visited the Agra Bear Rescue facility as well as the Elephant Haven (both run by an amazing organization, Wildlife SOS, which I have been following for several years now.) The hosts were extremely gracious to me and in addition to seeing the bears, Dr. Raja (chief vet) even showed me the operating theatre and mutiple interesting case x-rays... More

Costs 500 rs/person to enter to the bear rescue Centre. We came in a time when the bears were resting(noon), but it was still nice to see them so close! The information films helped understanding the background of Wildlife SOS better, watch them! Our guide was wonderful; very nice to talk to, passionate about animals and spoke good english! Go...
