The Wildlife Conservation Society

The Wildlife Conservation SocietyThe history of Wildlife Conservation Society research in India dates back to 1960's - with the first-ever scientific study of wild tigers in central India by George Schaller. Thereafter, following a break of two decades, Ullas Karanth initiated the present WCS-India program as a single tiger research project at Nagarahole in 1986. Since then, WCS-India has blossomed into a comprehensive portfolio of activities that encompass major global conservation strategies of WCS: scientific research, national capacity building, site-based conservation and developing new models of wildlife conservation. Acting synergistically, all these initiatives have contributed significantly to wildlife conservation in India and rest of the world during the last three decades.

India is a mega-diversity country that is particularly rich in vertebrate fauna. This is a result of its unique biogeography, and, evolutionary and social histories it has faunal elements from the Indo-Malayan, Afro-tropical and palearctic regions. For example out of the 226 extant carnivore species in the world, 52 species - ranging from lions, hyenas, tigers, wolves, snow leopards, leopards and 3 species of bears - occur in India, with even the cheetah being extirpated only fifty years ago.

The country has an ancient culture that views humans as a part of nature rather than as its masters; that shows a higher degree of toleration for other life forms compared to any other part of the world. Partly as a result - and partly due to India's colonial history - several effectively protected nature reserves have been established during the last thirty years. These now cover about 3% of the land area. However, there are formidable challenges to 'saving wildlife' in India: a billion strong human population largely dependent on land-based occupations; high degree of reliance on biomass for fuel, energy and structural materials; excessive livestock densities - all now supplemented by a modern consumerist economy growing at 6% a year; rapidly changing cultures and attitudes towards wildlife. However, the major social and ecological transformation that we are now seeing in rest of the tropical world - such as forest conversation and fragmentation - had occurred in India over a thousand years ago.
The Wildlife Conservation Society
In this context, Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), India program focuses on charismatic endangered megafauna in protected reserves (the last wild places) - as the most appropriate social tactic for saving biodiversity. During its 13 years of development, WCS-India program has blossomed from a single research project to encompass all the major strategies now pursued by WCS globally: Research; Capacity Building; Policy Interventions and Site-based conservation.
