Summary

The Mobile Veterinary Service (MVS) is one of Wildlife Trust of India's unique efforts to provide in- situ emergency relief to displaced or distressed wild animals.Animals can be displaced due to natural or man-made factors. Often, affected animals succumb to their situation due to inaccessibility and other challenges like getting trained wildlife professionals armed with essential equipment to the site of the emergency. Our MVS team works around the clock to rescue and treat these animals.

Challenge

Bandipur Tiger Reserve in Karnataka has 120 villages in its buffer area. In 2013 alone, 27 cases of leopards and 6 cases of tigers straying into human settlements were recorded. In many of these cases, animals are injured or killed with cases of smaller animals often going unrecorded. A recent example is an elephant calf that had fallen into a trench. Barely a month old, the calf was dehydrated and surrounded by a crowd of people. Another recent case has been that a of seriously injured tiger.

Solution

In both cases, our team was called in to help. The elephant calf was rescued and is now doing well at a rehabilitation center run by the Forest Department. He is still looked after by our veterinarian. The tiger was successfully tranquilized and is undergoing treatment for his injuries. The primary aim of the MVS unit is to minimize the crucial time gap between detection of a distressed animal and subsequent veterinary aid. Our MVS unit is a vet clinic by itself and works as a close knit team.

Long-Term Impact

Many such cases keep coming in, and will continue to do so. We need your help in ensuring each and every individual animal receives the care it deserves and is successfully reintegrated in the wild whenever possible. Our MVS team also assists the State Forest Department in conflict animal management, disease investigation operations during epidemics or sporadic deaths, livestock immunization and helps spread conservation awareness in the villages in the fringe areas through its activities
