WILDLIFE RESCUE WELCOMES YOU
Wildlife Rescue provides medical treatment and rehabilitation to about 2500 sick, injured, and orphaned raptors and water birds each year. We receive birds from many sources – members of the public, veterinary hospitals, police, government agencies, and other wildlife rehabilitators.
WHY DO THESE RAPTORS NEED OUR HELP?
Delhi has a huge population of raptors, mainly because of slaughter houses and meat processing plants.
The vast majority of raptors we receive have cut wounds which are inflicted by paper kite flying which is a favorite past time of people of Delhi. Further more they are poisoned by rodenticides; babies have their nest sites destroyed through construction, landscaping or trimming of tree branches. Sometimes young birds are simply picked up when they shouldn’t be. Superstitious beliefs that claims that raptors bring bad luck is also a big reason for the people destroying their nests and poising them.
WILD BIRD RESCUE
We have cared for more than 20,000 birds and animals since 2010.
Our innovative treatments help birds fly again and resume their role in the ecosystem
BIRD SHELTER & CARE
The Wildlife Rescue was formed in 2010 to provide quality health care, often on an emergency basis, to native wildlife.
The Role Of Our Wildlife Centre
Wildlife Rescue provides veterinary care for injured raptors and water birds and rehabilitate birds back into the wild.
The centre's hospital is equipped to deal with the variety of injured and sick birds that are admitted during the course of the year. We also receive about 500 to 700 orphan raptor chicks every year which needs special care and food. On average, about 2500 sick, injured and orphan birds are treated and cared for annually. The center is run by staff trained in emergency aid, with specialized avian veterinary care.
The hospital treats a wide variety of injuries and illnesses that include broken bones, infections, diseases and malnutrition. It also cares for babies and juveniles that have been left orphaned. For whatever reason a bird is brought into the hospital, the aim of the center is to rehabilitate that bird back into the wild.
