Wildlife SOS in India (WSOS), a non-governmental organisation specializing in animal rescue, has offered to "relocate" the surviving African black fish from Sultanpur lake. The lake, once the lifeline to the facility's avian and aquatic species, is currently dry as chalk, barring a few fast-shrinking puddles where the black fish are staring at certain death.

"We will be happy to help in relocating the African black fish away from the Sultanpur National Park," WSOS's co-founder Kartick Satyanarayan told HT.

Sultanpur park's Wildlife Inspector Shahid Khan said, "No fish can be relocated from a national park. It is banned."

But Satyanarayan said, "If there is a scientific reasons advocating the relocation, then the chief warden can pass an order in writing."
