To visit the rescued Bears and Elephants was a wonderful experience. To see the care these animals get now and to see them happy and playful finally after their life of cruelty is very heartwarming. The people who run SOS are such caring and loving individuals towards these wonderful animals. I would highly recommend a visit.

Went to the Elephant Conservation and Care Centre in Agra today, run by Wildlife SOS. Best thing I could of dreamt to do. Our guide was lovely and you could tell his passion from talking to him. We went on the 2 hour visit as we had to get a train later in the day but even in this time... More

My partner and I elected to spend one full Volunteer Day with Wildlife SOS including staying overnight the night prior. The accommodations are comfortable even in the summer and our hostess' food was theBOMB.com. We began our day being picked up and driven to the elephant facility and taking two different groups of elephants on their morning walk. Our guides... More

This is an amazing organization that truly does its best to help protect the amazing Indian wildlife. I spent a week working with them and was inspired by the staff's knowledge and passion. If you are in the area I strongly recommend you visit and do what you can to support this great cause.

We visited with our kids aged 12 and 14 as part of a 2 week tour of Rajestan and this was the highlight after the Taj Mahal. Far, far better than the commercial elephant parks like Elefantastic and significantly cheaper. The elephants are rescued from circuses and the like. They have 16 currently. We fed them, washed them and walked... More

Although Wildlife SOS is mainly known for our work with 'dancing bears' we also have active projects to help leopards, elephants, reptiles and other animals.  We also work... More

Seeing elephants during my time in India was a priority for me, but I did not want to participate in exploitative practices. Wildlife SOS gave me the opportunity to wash, feed, and walk alongside elephants that had been rescued from circuses and other horrible circumstances. The staff were extremely knowledgeable and their passion for animal welfare was apparent. I would... More
