Like many people, I wanted to see and interact with elephants during my stay in India. However, I had a bad feeling about many of the elephant programs, like "Elephantastic" in Jaipur. And, boy, was I right. Activities like these exploit these majestic animals. They keep them confined with little to no access to other elephants, even though they are... More

This rescue center is amazing, the work they do is very heart warming and inspiring. They rescue elephants from difficult backgrounds and try to provide them with the care and love they need. The elephants get daily vet check ups and the elephant caretakers make sure that all of the elephants' needs are well taken care of. We volunteered for... More

What a pleasure to spend even just a few hours at Wildlife SOS. First you start by hearing all the amazing rescue stories. That's when you get really mad at your friends who thing its cool to ride elephants on their vacation. It also shows you how the bears and elephants are exploited by the locals. How they blind them... More

You have to buy tickets for entering the park, bear rescue centre visit and boating visit at the main gate (entry check post) itself. If you miss to buy any ticket... More

In July of 2016 I travelled to India with a teen travel company called Rustic Pathways. For our time in India we worked at Wildlife SOS's Agra Bear Facility and Mathura Elephant Center. The staff was extremely nice and were so dedicated to the companies cause. Every animal and person at Wildlife SOS had an amazing story and it was... More

I learned a lot and loved everything they were doing on the reserve. It was great to spend time with such amazing animals and inspiring people who are truly dedicated to what they do. I would highly recommend to everyone. It is very eye-opening and provides a lot of perspective on what is really important in life.
