    Finding a family in the wild is not easy!
    By - Anjan Sangma - Wildlife Biologist, WTI

There are five of them, Rani, Tora, Difloo, Jakhala, and Philip (who joined them a week or so later). The calves have all been radio collared and are being remotely monitored by the Wild Rescue team. The...

    Philip Dev Progress Report - June 2013
    By - Dr. Reetika Maheshwari - Veterinarian, Wild Rescue
    Two-year-old Philip Dev has lost much of his baby Mohawk hairdo, but none of his wide-eyed wonder at the world around him and remains as inquisitive as ever. Philip’s tusks have finally emerged and have grown to about 5-6 cm. The fibroid on the knee still remains, but is not affecting him in any way and the vets are...

    Elephant Calves Progress Report March 2013
    By - Dr. Reetika Maheshwari - Veterinarian, CWRC
    Philip Dev is now 21 months old now and is the elephantine equivalent of a toddler. As he grows older he is losing his signature Mohawk hairdo but his antics still have his caregivers in splits. His excitement at the sight of his milk bottle is as great as ever and he will swing his trunk, wave his head to and fro and even...

    Update on Philip Dev August 2012
    By - Reetika Maheshwary - Assistant Veterinary Surgeon, CWRC, Assam
    Philip Dev, now a sturdy 15-month old is, as always, the most feisty of the group of young elephant calves at CWRC. You can always find him rushing to the keeper at feeding time, enthusiastically tossing of his head and trunk and sometimes even pushing Rani and Nunai out of the way in his hurry to be first in the line for...

    Progress Report on Philip Dev - Jan 2012
    By - Devna Arora - Programme Officer, Wild Rescue
    At 10 months of age, our adorable Philip is growing into a strong, happy and extremely naughty calf. He is very bashful around strangers and approaches cautiously, not wanting to miss out on anything yet keeping just a safe distance away. Hairier than the rest, Philip remains the centre of attention.  Let us also...
