One of Blue Cross’s volunteers, Mr. Selva Kumaran, a student in AVIT College of Engineering, Mamallapuram, rescued a Greater Flamingo near a vacant plot at Ekkaduthangal and carried the bird, that had minor injuries, to the Velachery shelter.

The Flamingo weighed more than three kilograms (7 pounds) and was 3 feet 5 inches tall. After receiving first aid, the bird was transferred to the Zoological park. She is doing well with access to fish in a pond and is being given the best medical care.

Blue Cross and its volunteers rescue many animals every day.
