New home for elephant and rhino calves in India

RhinoThe International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), in partnership with the Wildlife Trust of India, has established a multi-species rehabilitation center where injured and orphaned elephant and rhino calves get a second chance at life.

Located in the outskirts of Kaziranga National Park in the Northeast State of Assam, India, the Center takes in rhino and elephant calves either orphaned or injured by contact with humans, treating them and preparing them for eventual release back into the wild.

Once calves are old enough to be reintroduced to their natural habitat, they are transported to the Manas National Park, a more remote area where contact with humans is less likely.

IFAW-WTI's signed agreements with the Assam Forest Department and the Bodoland Autonomous Council (BTC), assures the protection of rhinos and elephants being moved to Manas.
