In addition to the street animals Amedabad is also home to several indigenous wild animals and reptiles such as vultures, owls, blue bull, jeckale, monkeys, peacocks, eagles, bats, cobras, craits, monitor lizards and rattle snakes. We try to do as much as possible for any injured wild animals, as the government wildlife department has no shelters or trained snake catching staff. However, we do not have the resources to deal with larger animals such as blue bull and so can only treat these animals at the road side.
The most common injuries sustained by the wild animals are due to road accidents or during kite flying season. Owl and vulture populations within the city are also under threat due to injuries and lack of nesting. The number of vultures has halved in the past 7 years from 200 in 2003 to 100 in 2010. We are very keen to see these numbers increase again through rehabilitation of any injured animals.
