I find immense happiness and satisfaction in observing, interacting with, and taking care of animals. When I finished my field work on elephants last year, my head was flummoxed by the swirls of inescapable thoughts on how I would never get to observe animals for almost 12 hrs day after day, how I wouldn't be involved in rescue missions, how much I would miss the tall trees and the red soil, how much I would miss the sound of leaf litter getting crushed under the weight of a 3 ton elephant, how I wouldn't get to see my calves grow up, and a myriad of other equally close-to-heart parts of an ecologist's life in a forest. But, time and again, domestic animals and local wildlife have come to my rescue in Bangalore. There are cats and kittens, dogs and puppies, birds, insects, and the bamboos of JNC keeping me sane. At this point, I am not sure if I am taking care of them or they are taking care of me - most probably the latter. I can stay days on end without communicating with even a single human but can't say the same for animals. I am just so grateful for all these wonderful creatures in my life ❤️
While feeding the pups and the mum today some humans with their kids stopped nearby. Their kids wanted to touch the puppies which is fine by why couldn't they teach their kids to wait till the puppies stopped sucking from the mother? I know people get intimidated by me and one side look was enough to stop them from getting any close to the puppy. The mother of one of the kids was saying that the kid can touch the puppy and it won't get disturbed. Take your entitlement away and fuck off! For fucks sake, observe! - the mother dog isn't lactating much, she doesn't want to suckle the pups, puppies are frantically trying to suck. The signs are there but we don't want to be compassionate. Puny humans.
Incredible capture and story. Plz read!💫

“Mandrills form the largest social groups of any non-human primate, with a troop of 1,300 once recorded in the forests of Gabon. With their striking faces and eyes, they have evolved some of the most spectacular coloration of any
mammalian species, the intensity of which signifies their social and sexual status. Sadly, it is not just their appearance that is appealing; mandrill meat is considered a delicacy in West Africa, and it is part of a growing trade, with tons of bushmeat being smuggled into western Europe every week.
Logging and farming are limiting their places of refuge, and these remarkable animals are in urgent need of stronger protections."
