Novus signs MOU with Wildlife SOS

When India’s Wildlife is under threat: Novus International joined hands to support Wildlife SOS in protecting it.

On 21st November 2016, Novus International, Inc. officially signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Wildlife SOS during its 25th Anniversary Celebration Dinner at ITC Kakatiya, Hyderabad, India. Protecting the environment is one of Novus’s core values and this along with the company’s commitment to sustainability has led to the collaboration initiative with Wildlife SOS to protect India’s wildlife which is under severe threat.

Wildlife SOS was established over 20 years ago with a strong inspiration to protect and conserve India’s natural heritage, forest and wildlife wealth. Today, the organization actively works on conserving habitats, studying biodiversity, conducting research and creating alternative and sustainable livelihoods for poacher communities who previously depended on wildlife for survival. Bannerghatta Bear Rescue Centre is one of Wildlife SOS’s important projects which is instrumental in rescuing and providing care for over a hundred Sloth Bears rescued from the Dancing Bear trade, poaching, ill-kept zoos and Human-Bear conflict situations.

As part of this association with Wildlife SOS; Novus has provided digital X-ray and scanner machines to be used in operation theatre for reviewing the well-being of the bears at the Bannerghatta Bear Rescue Centre. The MOU to officially mark the association was signed by Mr. Stuart Court, Novus's Regional Director for South Asia and South East Asia Pacific and Dr. Arun Sha, Director of Veterinary Research and Operations based at the Banerghatta Bear Rescue Centre. The ceremony was also joined by Dr. S.P. Vinil, Novus's Regional Marketing Manager, and Mr. Ashan Ratwatte, Novus's Director for South Asia.
