14/6/2018 Baby Monitor Lizard Rescued from a Flat in Mulund
At around 12:45 PM today afternoon a distress call was reported to our helpline stating that there was a larger than a lizard sort of reptile spotted in the kitchen of a flat in a society sharing boundary with SGNP in Mulund. While responding to the call a rescue team was assigned to respond to the distress call. Hasmukh Valanju from RAWW rescue team soon reached the site and successfully rescued a young monitor lizard from the house. The forest department was immediately intimated about the rescue and soon the reptile was medically examined and released back to its nearest natural habitat.
This a perfect example of coexisting, while living in a place next to forests we need to accept wildlife and the fact that animals dont understand man made boundaries and may be seen around human settlements. We appeal to people to not panic in such situations and contact the nearest wildlife rescue teams or the forest department for dealing with such situations. RAWW Helpline: 7666680202
