I had a great day at the elephant center. I learned so much and had tons of fun just being around the animals. Got to bathe a couple of the elephants and feed them. Later before sunset we did a walk that was a great finish to an already amazing day.

If you love wildlife and are visiting Agra, please stop here. This organization saved every dancing bear from the streets of India. Now they're working to save every elephant from the circuses of India. The park is beautiful. Be sure to walk with the elephants in the morning.

This is an extremely well run facility, make sure you pre book so that you will be met at the gate and shown around. You get to meet all the different bears and see the great work that is being done.

I have visited this place again for 2nd time now. What an experience. Selfless service these guys are doing there.. Such a love for animals and Once you hear the heart wrenching stories of animals there, there would be a definite paradigm shift in your thinking! This motivates and prepares me for all the hardships in life. LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!... More

Before an afternoon visit to the Taj Mahal, a friend and i visited the elephant sanctuary to learn a little and to do something a little unusual. It did not disappoint - the sanctuary seems to be doing great work, and we had fantastic access to the elephants. We were taught a lot about the elephants, their individual personalities and...

I've been there twice now, and both experiences have been amazing. The work that Wildlife SOS is doing is incredible and it is almost life changing to be able to interact with these amazing animals in person. You get to see that they are incredible creatures that have led very unfortunate lives, and it makes a very strong case for... More

In February, I had the most amazing opportunity to volunteer with Wildlife SOS in their elephant and sloth bear sanctuaries in Agra. I spent one week volunteering at the elephant center where I got to bond with 7 beautiful elephants and some of their caretakers, or mahouts. In my first day there I had learned all the elephant names and... More

The Bear Rescue Facility in Agra, run by Wildife SOS adds a touch of difference to a city usually known for its stunning historical monuments. We visited the facility and had such a grand experience - observing the rescued sloth bears playing or lazing around happily, learning more about their traumatic past lives and how they are doing now.

I support Wildlife S.O.S for about 6 years and have been in their both rescuer centers. I really appreciate their work specially when you know how difficult to do such work in India because of bureaucracy. If you are working or leaving in Delhi or going to see Taj Mahal just stop for a day/ half day at their place... More
