Rescue of Wild Animal in West Bengal
Wildlife administration in West Bengal is actively involved in rescue and rehabilitation of wild animals. From the straying incidences of tigers in the Sundarbans to the rescuing of Gangetic tortoises from the river-banks and relocation of wild animals from the urban set-up and returning them to their original habitat in the rightful wilderness, all constitute regular day-to-day activity of the Wildlife Wing of Forest Directorate in West Bengal.
To ameliorate the man-animal conflict in Kolkata, the Wildlife Wing maintains a rescue squad in the ‘Transit Facility for the Rescued Wildlife’ at Salt Lake in Kolkata. Other territorial / wildlife divisions also perform similar functions within their designated jurisdictions. The rescued animals are temporarily housed at the rescue centres and are subsequently rehabilitated to the wild after medical treatment.
