Description:

Since its inception in 1994, the Wildlife Protection Society of India (WSPI) has been "providing support and information for authorities who are combating poaching and the escalating illegal wildlife trade-particularly in wild tigers. It has now broadened its focus to deal with human-animal conflicts and provide support for research projects." Site visitors can learn about the activities of different WPSI Programmes including the Tiger Protection Programme, Endangered Species Protection Programme, Research for Conservation Programme, Legal Programme, and more. The site also links to related news stories from 2003 to the present such as a recent Delhi Police press release regarding the seizure of 45 leopard skins in Delhi. The website offers brief information sections for those wishing to learn more about Indian tigers including Behavioural Characteristics, Threats, History, and Status. In addition, the site contains Tiger Poaching Statistics, a map of Tiger Reserves in India, and a collection of related links.
