There are 3,500 working elephants in India. According to Wildlife SOS, many of them live in less than optimal living situations and/or are abused. This conservancy was set up about five years ago to rescue those elephants in the most dire situations. Today there are 35 elephants on the property.

If anyone would like to have an experience working with the carers of the bear and elephant sanctuary, then I would recommend this entirely. To actually participate is an experience and truly rewarding.

Spent the day learning about what these lovely creatures have had to endure and how the sanctuary has transformed their lives. Great day out! Definitely worth the trip to both of staying in Agra.

Spent the day here. Once again its heartbreaking to see what we do to animals for our entertainment and profit. Thankfully Wildlife SOS rescue sloth beers from the cruel entertainment of dancing bears and give them a happy retirement

I have just returned home after spending 2 weeks volunteering there with the beautiful rescued elephants and Sloth bears. What an incredible and wonderful experience I had. It was so touching to spend time with these amazing animals and to learn about their backgrounds and the wonderful work Wildlife SOS are doing in making their lives so much better. Equally... More

It is so heartening to learn the Elephants are also part of this beautiful Sanctuary. Hats of to those involved and saving the Elephants from misuse by people. The best way to do the SOS Sanctuary would be do it when you are departing for Delhi or Jaipur.Visit it at Lesiure and be with the nature. Its a beautiful picnic... More
