The Film understands wild life rescue and rehabilitation in one of the prime wild life habitats of India – Kaziranga, Assam. The Center for Wild Life Rehabilitation and Conservation (CWRC) along with the forest department has been rescuing animals for the last 12 years – orphaned and stranded rhinos, elephants, tigers, leopards, Asiatic black bears, badgers, jungle cats, slow loris, leopard cats, owls and others. Many of these juvenile animals are successfully hand-raised and rehabilitated back in the wild, while rescued adults are treated and released as soon as possible.
