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. They... More

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

Although the case is a worthy one better to send them money rather than waste time at this truly boring and ill conceived attraction.

We visited both areas, the bears and the elephants. The bears are located within the bird sanctuary controlled by the Forest commission, so there is a charge to get in here, prior to reaching the bears, but this is outside of the charities control. We had a private tour of the bears and of the elephants, the work they are... More

We visited on 26th of February whilst staying in Agra. We booked to go to both sanctuaries, and hired a driver for the day from Agra which was 2000 rupees(cheap considering time and distance). The Bear sanctuary is located near Kheetham lake just off NH2 and the bird reserve is called soor sarovar (not Bharatpur/Keoladeo Np like some drivers may... More

We recently spent a couple of hours at the Wildlife SOS facility. We only say the sloth bears because the tour was 2 hours long and we did not have time to see the elephants as well. The facility is great and they do a wonderful job. The only criticism I have is that the tour could have been shorter... More

The bird sanctuary is actually the most interesting bit as you get to see quite a lot of animals, mainly birds on the banks of the lake. The actual bear rescue center was interesting but somehow a bit of a let down. There's a lot of posters to give you information about the bears and other spieces foudn in that... More
