The Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation Center was founded in 2000, in response to the need of small wild mammals, birds and reptiles found in the city by way of confiscation, injury or orphaned. It is the sister organization of CUPA. Around 500 wild animals and birds are received by the wildlife center at
Bannerghatta every year. Handled by dedicated staff and veterinarians, these precious wild animals and birds need careful monitoring, specialized diets,
treatments and knowledgeable handling so that they can be released in their habitats in the wild, where they belong.
We consider this an important center for the city, since it helps to sustain and protect Bangalore’s depleting wildlife. WRRC also helps to raise awareness
on conservation isssues and the need to protect the environment. Legal action, research on elephants in captivity, and changing public attitudes to
cruelties and abuse on wild animals has been an important mandate for us.
Both CUPA and WRRC are registered with the Animal Welfare Board of India. They have Income Tax exemption for all donations in India and charity status
in the United Kingdom. They are registered as a 501(c) (3) non-profit organizations in the United States.
