Tiger Safari Nagarhole  Wildlife SanctuaryThe history of Wildlife Conservation Society research in India began in the 1960's - with the first-ever scientific study of wild tigers in central India by George Schaller. Henceforth, following a break of two decades, Ullas Karanth accelerated the present WCS-India program as a single tiger research project at Nagarhole in the year 1986. Ever since, WCS-India has developed into a comprehensive collection of activities that revolve around major global conservation strategies of WCS - scientific research, national capacity building, site-based conservation and developing new models of wildlife conservation. Acting synchronously, all these initiatives have contributed significantly to wildlife conservation in India and rest of the world during the last three decades.

Wildlife Conservation Society India Program
India is a mega-diversity country that is distinctly rich in vertebrate fauna. This is a result of its distinct biosphere, and, evolutionary and social histories it has faunal elements from the Indo-Malayan, Afro-tropical and palearctic regions. India boasts of about 500 species of mammal, 2000 types of Bird and at least 30,000 kinds of insects, providing an unmatched range and diversity.

India has an age old culture that considers human as a part of nature rather than as its masters; that displays a higher degree of equitableness for other life forms in contrast to any other part of the world. Partly as a result - and partly due to India's colonial past - several excellently protected nature reserves have been sanctioned during the last three decades. These now cover about 4% of the land area. However, there are threatening 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 revolution that we are now seeing in rest of the tropical world had existed in India over a 1000 years ago.

In this context, Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), India program concentrates on charming endangered megafauna in protected reserves (the last wild places) - as the most befitting social tactic for saving the ecosystem. During its 13 years of development, WCS-India program has flourished from a single research project to embrace all the major strategies now pursued by WCS globally - Research; Capacity Building; Policy Interventions and Site-based conservation.
