As part of a cir­cus for more than five decades, Rhea (left) and Sita en­dured bru­tal treat­ment and ne­glect un­til they were res­cued by Wildlife SOS. Sita was brought to the group’s con­ser­va­tion cen­ter in Mathura, In­dia, in Novem­ber 2015, and five months later, Rhea fi­nally joined her. The pals were re­u­nited “amid squeals of ex­cite­ment and trunk-hold­ing,” says Kartick Satya­narayan, co-founder of Wildlife SOS. “It was over­whelm­ing that we had brought th­ese gen­tle giants back to­gether.”
