FEATURED PROJECTS
The Centre for Bear Rehabilitation and Conservation (CBRC) is the first specialised rehabilitation centre for Asiatic black bears in India.

The Whale Shark Conservation Project attempts to generate baseline data on the whale shark to aid its long-term conservation in India. A joint venture of the Gujarat Forest Department, Tata Chemicals Limited (TCL) and Wildlife Trust of India (WTI), the project activities involve scientific studies of whale sharks through photo-identification, genetic analysis and satellite tagging.
Mobile Veterinary Service (MVS) project is one of the unique efforts of Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) to provide in-situ emergency relief to displaced or distressed wild animals. The project envisages placement of trained and equipped wildlife veterinarians in major protected areas across the country to ensure round-the-clock medical attention to wild animals in need.
The Udanti Wild Buffalo Recovery Project aims to stabilise the wild buffalo population in Udanti Wildlife Sanctuary, Chhattisgarh by implementing a number of ex situ and in situ interventions.
In November, 2010, Forest Department of Assam and WTI in collaboration with ONGC launched a 3-year long ecological research programme – the “Eastern Swamp Deer Conservation Project” in Kaziranga, in an effort to understand the ecology of the swamp deer and develop strategies for conservation of the sub-species. This was designed, to help in developing conservation strategies for the swamp deer population in Kaziranga and to create new sub-populations in the subspecies’ erstwhile distribution.
