About Us

Wildlife Conservation Society - India (WCS-India) is a Section 25 non-profit company incorporated in India and compliant with all Indian regulations. In accordance with the global mission, our overarching goal is to protect and conserve the natural environment, its flora and fauna, and in particular to preserve wildlife and wild places in India. We combine wildlife conservation action and strategic policy interventions with rigorous principles of conservation science and forge long-lasting productive partnerships with governmental and non-governmental partners as well as with local communities. Our conservation action addresses the overarching threats of habitat fragmentation, poaching and wildlife trade, as well as human-wildlife interactions, which impact our biodiversity and its habitats. 

Based on these principles, our work has facilitated the consolidation of critical natural spaces while also bringing thousands of marginalised people into the mainstream to access a better quality of life. Considering the ever-changing facets of the issues and challenges associated with wildlife conservation, we accomplish our objectives with the help of communities and stakeholders as diverse as the ecosystems and species we work on.
