About Vantara: Anant Ambani led animal rescue and care facility 

Vantara is an umbrella initiative that focuses on rescue, treatment, care and rehabilitation of injured, abused and threatened animals, both in India and abroad. Spread over 3,000 acres within the Green Belt of Reliance's Jamnagar Refinery Complex in Gujarat, Vantara aims to be one of the leading contributors to conservation efforts globally. Vantara has been conceptualised and birthed under the leadership of Anant Ambani, said Reliance in its statement. 

"My source of inspiration was my mother and along with it what we have been taught in Hindu religion or Sanatana Dharma and that's why I have built this. As they say, 'The small water droplets will fill a big ocean'. This should be in the hearts of every human being that every being is same. If this will be the thought process, then everyone will get inspired and India could be a unique case study globally, where we can do a lot for the welfare of animals," Anant Ambani told ANI after the launch of initiative in Gujarat. 

The launched rescue and rehabilitation center spanning 650 acres has been established within the extensive 3000-acre premises.
