The WCS-India mission combines research on wildlife with conservation practices and national capacity-building through constructive collaborations with governmental and non-governmental partners. Combining extensive ecological surveys of wildlife that have yielded massive data, with conservation projects working to restore wildlife habitat, our work has helped consolidate wild spaces while also bringing hundreds of people into the mainstream to access a better quality of life. Our work has helped tiger recovery efforts in a big way. We have developed advanced statistical models for wildlife population assessments as also many wildlife study techniques that are now finding application globally.
