Wild animals in distress are rescued and brought to Lady Hydari Park,Shillong and Nehru Park cum Mini Zoo, Danakgre for their veterinary care and treatment. After their recovery, all such animals are again released into suitable habitats. Every year, the Department also recognizes the selfless efforts of the individuals involved in animal rescue by bestowing ‘Wildlife Samaritan award’ upon hundreds of individuals during the Wildlife Week Celebration.
