R Sukumar — A Brief Review of the Status, Distribution and Biology of Wild Asian Elephants Elephas maximus- International Zoo Yearbook While this information source is considered the very best available, accurate data on wild elephant populations is difficult to obtain and scientifically verify. Wild Elephants in India In past centuries, the forests of India literally teemed with elephants.
In collaboration with Central and State Governments as well as partnerships with several national and international institutions CWS practices science-based conservation to promote protection of wildlife and wildlands.
Ullas Karanth, CWS has conducted path-breaking research on the ecology and population dynamics of tigers, leopards, elephants and other Indian large mammals. CWS has been a leader in the fields of radio-telemetry, advanced field survey methods, animal population modelling and estimation.
This conservation success has increased the frequency and severity of crop and property damage, livestock predation and occasionally human injury and death. Research led by Dr Krithi K. These reserves are home to globally important populations of tigers, leopards and elephants.
Live monitoring has enabled us to identify locations where repeated losses or encounters have taken place.
For families experiencing repeat depredation incidents, we have built several predator-proof livestock sheds. Wild Seve staff also actively support other requests from people to assist them with wildlife-related issues in their village.Conservation Centers in India A number of Conservation Centers have been set up in India for the purpose of studying, propagating, conserving and for the betterment of the highly endangered species of wildlife, both flora and fauna.
These Conservation Centers can be divided into Wildlife Reserves, Conservation Centers and Wildlife Sanctuaries.
Biodiversity Conservation Projects in India T he UNDP/GEF Small Grants Programme is currently being implemented in over forty countries. The apex body which has the over all responsibility for sanction of projects is the National Selection Committee (NSC) constituted by the Government of India.
All the above centres were under the control of Ministry of Food and Agriculture, Govt., of India up to September 30, On October 1,, all of them excepting the Chattra centre were transferred to Indian Council of Agricultural Research, which continued to co-ordinate the research and training facilities up to October from New Delhi.
ENVIS Centre on Conservation of Ecological Heritage and Sacred Sights of India; ENVIS; C.P.R. Environmental Education Centre is a Centre of Excellence of the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India.
Conservation reserves and community reserves in India are terms denoting protected areas of India which typically act as buffer zones to or connectors and migration corridors between established national parks, wildlife sanctuaries and reserved and protected forests of India.
Manuscript Conservation Partner Centres (MCPC-s) In order to facilitate and provide assistance to institutions with large holdings of manuscripts, the Mission nominates such institutions as Manuscript Conservation Partner Centres (MCPC-s).
