Wildlife SOS successfully brought an end to the centuries old practice of bear performances across India using a combination of social engineering, women empowerment, seed funding, skill development, children's education (currently 1220 Kalandar children attend school) and of course passion and perseverance. Today the Kalandar community that used to cause the poaching of bear cubs is earning its living through alternative livelihoods. Wildlife SOS has rescued and rehabilitated over 630 bears across India! and runs the worlds largest bear rehabilitation centres for sloth bears.
