Jamnagar, 13th May 2024: Nestled amidst the tranquil landscapes of Jamnagar, Gujarat, Anant Ambani’s Vantara stands as a beacon of compassion and innovation in the realm of wildlife rescue and rehabilitation. With a steadfast commitment to providing advanced medical care and holistic support to distressed animals, Vantara emerges as a global leader in wildlife preservation.

Meaning “Star of The Forest,” Vantara represents a visionary initiative spearheaded by Anant Ambani, with the robust backing of Reliance Industries and Reliance Foundation. Situated within the sprawling expanse of the Jamnagar Refinery Complex, spanning an impressive 3000 acres, Vantara serves as a sanctuary for animals facing abuse, injury, or the threat of extinction.

In a bold and daring rescue operation, Vantara orchestrated a meticulously planned mission to liberate Elephant Pratima and her calf from captivity in Tripura. The operation, which involved a convoy of six vehicles including ambulances and support vehicles, along with a dedicated team of 22 staff members, exemplifies Vantara’s unwavering dedication to animal welfare. Covering a staggering distance of 3500 kilometers from Jamnagar to Tripura in just 24 hours, the team ensured essential care and support for Pratima every step of the way.

Upon their arrival, Pratima and her calf underwent extensive treatment by Vantara’s team of specialists, addressing a myriad of health issues including wounds, lacerations, limb stiffness, and blindness. Despite receiving prior treatment by local veterinarians, including antibiotics and painkillers, their survival hung precariously in the balance, necessitating urgent intensive care and nutritional support.

Supported by compelling evidence including medical records, visual documentation, and governmental endorsements, Pratima and her calf’s remarkable recovery serves as a testament to Vantara’s unwavering commitment to excellence in wildlife rehabilitation.

Moreover, Vantara’s robust infrastructure is poised to provide continuous care for up to 500 elephants, ensuring that no animal in need is ever turned away.

According to a statement released by PETA, Pratima and her calf were unlawfully held without proper documentation, flagrantly violating wildlife protection laws. A veterinary examination revealed distressing signs of neglect, further emphasizing the critical need for intervention.

Under the expert care of Vantara’s dedicated team, led by veterinarians including Dr. Jahan from Gauhati, Pratima and her calf are steadily progressing on the path to recovery. With round-the-clock medical attention and unwavering support, both mother and calf are experiencing a remarkable transformation, defying the odds and igniting hope for their future.
