Special Care for Suzy, our Oldest ElephantLife hasn't been kind to Suzy. Probably snatched from the wild and separated from her herd and family as a calf, Suzy spent the next six plus decades in captivity, brutalised at the hands of human beings, suffering endlessly as a circus elephant.Rescued one year ago this month, Suzy's life is very different now. But her advanced age and special needs require very special care. Not only is Suzy the oldest of the rescued elephants at the Elephant Conservation and Care Centre, she's also completely blind. At 65 years old and weighing little more than 2,400 kilos, this amazing elephant's miniature frame is home to a large, and endlessly loveable personality.

Bringing Relief to the Animal Victims of the Chennai FloodsFor a while, it seemed like the rain would never stop. The ceaseless downpour flooded the city of Chennai, destroying homes, offices and public spaces and destroying lives and livelihoods. Nearly two weeks later, even as the floodwater receded, supplies ran short and the threat of waterborne diseases loomed in the air as the people of Chennai struggled to get back on their feet and put together the lives washed away by the torrential rain.Amdist the chaos of natural disaster, it's always easy to forget the voiceless victims of the calamity, and many people don't realise the number of animals, both domestic and wild, that lose their lives or are left diseased, stranded and starving in the aftermath of the floods.
