About WCS-India

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, WCS-India’s overarching goal is the protection and conservation of the natural environment, its flora and fauna, and in particular the preservation of 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, WCS-India's work has facilitated the consolidation of critical natural spaces while also bringing thousands of marginalized 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, WCS-India’s objectives encompass a range of ecosystems and species across the country— from the dense forests of Karnataka and Kerala, and the tropical deciduous forests of Eastern Ghats, to the arid grasslands of Rajasthan; from the unique riverine habitats of the North and North East India landscape to the vibrant coral reefs in the south.
