Wildlife SOS co-founders Kartick Satyanarayan and Geeta Seshamani will present exciting video footages of their recent elephant rescues in India. These include the rescue of Mohan, the ‘unluckiest elephant in the world’, now living free after decades chained in captivity; as well as the story of Rhea – her rescue reunited her with two elephant friends she had been separated from for months. They will also share their personal trials and tribulations, as well as the jubilation of giving captive elephants their well-deserved freedom. Wildlife SOS’s major achievement was abolishing the barbaric practice of dancing bears, where sloth bear cubs poached from the wild were trained using cruel methods to entertain tourists in India. As an extension of this project, the talk will cover the rehabilitation of the Calendar communities (originally Muslim gypsies famous for their animal mastery) through education and an alternative livelihood programme.
