REHABILITATION OF JACKAL POPULATION FROM NETAJI SUBHASH CHANDRA BOSE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT 2017-2019

19Mar

We are working at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose International Airport since 2017 to safely rehabilitate the population of Jackals present there.

Jackals are very old residents of the place. The thick grasslands with sporadic ponds provide them the perfect location to hunt, socialize and play. Though they have a scavenging nature, they are not shy of hunting tiny prey like rodents and crabs. The success of Jackals over other animals lies in the fact that they eat almost anything they find and they mate and produce offspring early.

However, an airport is not a place for a Jackal to live in. It is neither safe for the animal nor safe for the people there. Therefore removing the Jackals becomes a necessity. We are working with the Airport Authority, Animal Capturing Experts and many others to find a solution to this problem. Capturing Jackals is not at all an easy task as they are very intelligent and quick to adapt to their changing environment.

We are working hard for a better future for both the Jackals and the passengers who use the airport daily.
