India: Training in Nagaland Enhances Wildlife Care & Rehabilitation


Recently, the Nagaland Zoological Park (NZP) in Rangapahar organised a two-day animal care, handling, and rehabilitation training. Wildlife Conservation Society India (WCS-India) officials led the course, which comprised three classroom sessions and hands-on experience in animal enclosures.

During the classroom sessions, the participants, who included animal keepers from the New Zealand Police, people from the criminal section of wildlife in Dimapur, and members of the Dimapur division, were taught in-depth information about the basics of wildlife care and rehabilitation. The WCS representatives educated the attendees via PowerPoint presentations.


Participants were given a chance to get hands-on experience in animal enclosures at NZP during the afternoon sessions. This gave the trainees information and abilities applicable to their work with animals.

Dr C. Zupeni Tsanglai, the director of NZP, delivered the concluding remarks and distributed diplomas to the workshop’s participants. The successful session contributed to the participants’ increased knowledge and proficiency in handling, caring for, and rehabilitating animals.

The proper handling, care, and rehabilitation of wildlife are of utmost significance, as they contribute to the protection and preservation of wildlife. The workshop offered by NZP and WCS-India performed a vital role in educating the attendees on these critical issues.

The two-day programme enhanced the participants’ awareness and understanding of animal handling, care, and rehabilitation. The participants, who included animal keepers from the New Zealand Police and employees from the criminal section of wildlife in the Dimapur division, obtained vital insights and practical skills that will assist them in enhancing the care and protection of wildlife.

The participants’ hands-on experience in the animal enclosures gave them a unique chance to comprehend the practical element of wildlife care and rehabilitation. The attendees also learnt that providing animals with adequate care and rehabilitation is vital for their survival and well-being.

The participants also learnt the many strategies and approaches for safely handling wildlife, which is essential for preventing animal and human handlers’ injuries. This is particularly significant in wildlife rehabilitation, as animals must be taken carefully to guarantee their successful rehabilitation and release back into the wild.


The workshop was a terrific success, and the participants enjoyed learning from animal conservation specialists. They thanked NZP and WCS-India for hosting such beneficial training and expressed their hope that such workshops would be done in the future.

The training on the proper handling, care, and rehabilitation of wildlife was an essential step in supporting wildlife preservation in Nagaland. It gave participants vital insights and practical skills that will enhance the care and conservation of local animals. The programme also emphasised the need to provide adequate care and rehabilitation to wildlife. It is anticipated that the information learned by the participants will be utilised to increase the survival and welfare of wildlife in Nagaland.
