COOL MEASURES FOR RESIDENTS ON HOT DAYS
Our caregivers are always thinking of new ways to create mentally stimulating enrichments for our residents. Here Cupid climbs a tree to get to a cool popsicle treat. Cupid gets good exercise and a healthy snack while she beats the heat.
Mercury levels are hitting records of up to 49°C in the hotter parts of India. Since much of the country is in the tropics, the summer season can be difficult. The dedicated team at Wildlife SOS ensures that a summer care plan is implemented to help our elephants and bears beat the heat.
