The Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation Centre (WRRC) was registered in July 1999 as a public charitable trust for the conservation and welfare of wildlife in urban and rural areas around Bangalore, India. WRRC was set up by the trustees of Compassion Unlimited Plus Action (CUPA), in response to a keenly felt need: to provide relief to wild animals, birds and reptiles; including medical treatment and housing; as well as to handle cases of cruelty involving these animals. We operate three facilities – the Bannerghatta Rehabilitation Centre (BRC) and two Elephant Care Facilities (ECF) in Malur, Karnataka and Marakkanam, Tamil Nadu. Besides wildlife rescue and rehabilitation WRRC is also involved in the prevention of cruelty, humane education, campaigns and legal battles, research and surveys on captive elephants.
