Wildlife SOS are a charity in India who rescues and rehabilitates wildlife in distress. They specifically address the problem of injured and sick elephants that are forced to work in the slums and crowded cities; taking action to remove abused elephants and retire them to their sanctuary. Every Spring they hold an on line auction to raise funds to which I donate a piece of art.
Wildlife SOS was established in 1995 by a small group of individuals inspired to start a movement and make lasting change to protect and conserve India's natural heritage, forest and wildlife wealth. Today, the organisation has evolved to actively work towards protecting Indian wildlife, conserving habitat, studying biodiversity, conducting research and creating alternative and sustainable livelihoods for erstwhile poacher communities or those communities that depend on wildlife for sustenance.
