FEATURED PROJECTS
Under the Pakke Conservation Project, the Centre for Bear Rehabilitation and Conservation (CBRC) is the first specialised rehabilitation centre for Asiatic black bears in India. Supported by the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF), the centre was established jointly by the Arunachal Pradesh Forest Department, International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) and Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) in 2002, with an aim to rehabilitate displaced cubs back into the wild.
West Coast Marine Conservation Project in Gujarat has two components -- the Whale Shark Conservation Project and the Coral Reef Recovery Project. A joint venture of the Gujarat Forest Department, Tata Chemicals Limited and WTI, the project activities involve scientific studies of whale sharks through photo-identification, genetic analysis and satellite tagging. Moreover, the Coral Reef Recovery Project seeks to develop and implement appropriate strategies for the conservation of Mithapur reef.
The Udanti Wild Buffalo Recovery Project aims to stabilise the wild buffalo population in Udanti Wildlife Sanctuary, Chhattisgarh by implementing a number of ex situ and in situ interventions.
GET INVOLVED

In a major boost to combating wildlife crimes, for the first time in India, Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) with support of Wildlife Crime Control Bureau (WCCB) has developed an Android based smartphone application wherein users can report wildlife crimes from anywhere across the country using their phones. The app also has an integrated digital version of the Wild Life (Protection) Act, 1972 and was formally handed over to WCCB on November 3, 2014.

BRIGHT-EYED, SWEET-TOOTHED
The common palm civet is omnivorous but especially fond of the sweet sap of palm flowers, earning it the sobriquet of ‘toddy cat’. Abhijeet Bayani spotted this one on the western buffer of Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve.
SEPIA IN VERDANT HUE
From the Greek word for cuttlefish ('sepia') comes the colour of old photographs and tinted selfies. Praveen Kumar captures this Common Cuttlefish in a different hue, wrapped in emerald by the waters off Mithapur.
CAPTIVATING
Achintya Tripathi captures the gigantic sense of awe an elephant evokes among the smaller folk attending the annual Sonepur Cattle Fair in Bihar, where WTI has run a health camp for captive elephants for over a decade.
FISH & FOWL
Never mind the name, Pallas's fish eagles aren't averse to waterfowl for dinner -- often performing impressive weightlifting feats while grabbing them off the water. Upasana Ganguly found this one feasting in Kaziranga NP.
DARK MEETS LIGHT
Abhishek Narayanan captures the chiaroscuro of a Boulenger's Indian Gecko in Amboli, Maharashtra.
TILL WE MEET AGAIN

TWO HOOTS GIVEN

WILDLIFE IN TAMED LANDS
A mother elephant with her calf beside her, photographed by Subhamoy Bhattacharjee at the Lakhoojan Tea Estate in Assam. Increasing deforestation has made such plantations secondary habitats for wild elephants across India.
I'M SEXY AND I KNOW IT
Indian wild dogs are beautiful and badass predators, though it sometimes seems they aren't 'sexy' enough to get the conservation attention they deserve. Dr Mayukh Chatterjee found this one posing atop a rock in Bandipur NP.
ONE-AND-A-HALF MEN
Rupa Gandhi Chaudhary ran into these Central Indian Barasingha bros, one slightly the worse for wear, at a watering hole in Kanha Tiger Reserve.
SIMILIPAL NIGHTLIFE

PREY WITHOUT A PRAYER
Changeable hawk-eagles perch bolt upright on the boughs of tall trees, keeping a sharp lookout for prey. In Dudhwa NP, Prem Chandra Pandey captures the tail-end of what usually happens when they spot something tasty.
