Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Sunday visited an Indian wildlife sanctuary with his family.
Trudeau was joined by his wife and their three children aged 2, 9 and 10 at the Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Centre in Mathura.
They enjoyed feeding the elephants and learning about each of the animals, all of whom have been given a second chance at life free from abuse and cruelty.
Wildlife SOS runs a bear rescue centre in Agra and an elephant rescue centre in Mathura.
The Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Centre (ECCC) was established in 2010 in Mathura and provides critical medical treatment and lifetime care to 24 rescued elephants.
Trudeau and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi will hold talks on civil nuclear cooperation, space, defence, energy and education.
