TACO Deploys Seven Patrolling Vehicles at Ranthambore National Park to Aid Wildlife Conservation

The Animal Care Organization (TACO), a flagship animal welfare initiative under the Vedanta Group’s social impact arm, the Anil Agarwal Foundation, marked World Wildlife Day by deploying seven patrolling vehicles at the Ranthambore National Park in Rajasthan. The event, attended by Ms. Priya Agarwal Hebbar, Anchor, TACO, Chairperson, Hindustan Zinc Ltd, and Non-Executive Director, Vedanta Ltd, along with Shri Pawan Kumar Upadhyay, IFS, Principal Chief Conservator of Forest (PCCF) & Chief Wildlife Warden (CWLW), Govt of Rajasthan, and other forest officials, celebrated this significant step towards wildlife conservation.

Ranthambore National Park utilized the grant of INR 1 crore awarded earlier by TACO to procure these seven vehicles. The deployment of these vehicles is a testament to TACO’s commitment to protecting endangered species and their habitats, supporting the efforts of conservationists and forest departments.

Ms. Priya Agarwal Hebbar expressed, “We are pleased to contribute to the crucial conservation efforts at Ranthambore National Park through TACO. The provision of these seven state-of-the-art patrolling vehicles underscores our steadfast dedication to strengthening the park’s anti-poaching measures and response mechanism, thus fortifying the region’s ecological balance. This collaboration also symbolizes Anil Agarwal Foundation’s resolution to safeguard our ecosystem for generations to come.”


Shri Pawan Kumar Upadhyay commented, “We extend our heartfelt gratitude to TACO for their invaluable contribution to the conservation efforts at Ranthambore National Park. The provision of these state-of-the-art patrolling vehicles marks a significant enhancement to our surveillance and anti-poaching measures. TACO’s constant support to our team strengthens our resolve to protect the park’s rich biodiversity and ensure the well-being of its majestic inhabitants. We will continue to work in the future for the betterment of wildlife in Rajasthan.”

The deployment of these vehicles marks a pivotal step towards enhancing conservation activities at Ranthambore National Park, aiding in the surveillance and protection of its wildlife population, including its 88 tigers. The park boasts a rich diversity of flora and fauna, making it a vital ecosystem that requires diligent protection.

TACO’s initiatives encompass a holistic approach to ‘One Health’, recognizing the interconnection between people, animals, plants, and their shared environment. The organization’s shelter in Faridabad, Haryana, provides a home to numerous animals, focusing on rescue, rehabilitation, advanced veterinary care, and overall well-being. Additionally, TACO’s dedication extends to education and training through the TACO Academy, which conducts sessions for veterinarians and para-professionals. TACO also supports and strengthens veterinary healthcare services in the Delhi-NCR through OPD and ambulance services and is coming up with a multi-specialty veterinary hospital focused on advanced animal healthcare in Faridabad.
