He says he imbibed his love for animal welfare from his elders who coexisted with the flora and fauna of the city.

Kumar believes older generations should play an active role in helping youngsters realise the importance of preserving the environment.

 

He started rescuing and rehabilitating wildlife since 2010. He gained experience while volunteering with the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) forest cell.



“I started to train and gain practical experience from BBMP rescuers. As I started getting better at the job, I began to get calls from the BBMP control room,” he told TOI.

 

On daily basis, Kumar attends about five rescue calls and also, conducts awareness programmes about the various elements that cause injury to birds and wildlife.

“People don’t know that the commonly used Chinese manja strings, used for flying kites, are very harmful to birds. They die when they get trapped in it,” he says.

 

A volunteer, Deepika S Dhakad, said, “In this busy world, Kumar takes time out for birds and animals in distress. Sometimes, he spends his own resources. It’s heartening to have people like him and we should always applaud such efforts.”
