Rhino & Tiger Conservation in Tropical N.E. India

The lush grasslands on the flood plains of the Brahmaputra River in north-east India are home to the great Indian one horned rhinoceros, which is one of the most endangered species in the world. It is threatened by poaching for its horn and encroachment of its habitat. Tigers also roam these plains. WPSI is developing a project for the protection of endangered species in the region. Initially, it will focus on the rhino and tiger, and later be extended to include other species.

In the meantime, our Project Officer for the region is already active, helping authorities to track down rhino poachers and providing legal support in rhino poaching cases. WPSI also provides financial assistance for the repair of patrol boats and equipment for field staff. The Project Officer assists in the prosecution of significant wildlife cases in local courts in the states of Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh.
