Camera trap survey shows presence of snow leopards in Arunachal 19.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
A recent study by the World Wildlife Federation-India on snow leopards has yielded photo evidence of the elusive species in Arunachal Pradesh, a state resplendent with biodiversity and yet largely unexplored. The evidence is particularly significant, given that large natural areas in the state fall under the custodianship of local communities whose support is crucial to protect the species and its habitat. The species was photographed by a camera trap set up at Thembang, a community conserved area in the state. Only a fraction of the snow leopard habitat in the state comes under two protected areas, Dibang Biosphere Reserve and Namdapha National Park. The presence of the big cat beyond these protected areas highlights the importance of community support for conservation as well as landscape-scale conservation planning. The statewide survey, carried out by WWF-India in collaboration with the Arunachal Pradesh forest department, was conducted from March 2017, focusing on unexplored areas, a press statement ...

Genetic diversity key to tiger survival 16.10.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Tiger numbers have started rising in recent years, which is good news for an endangered species reduced to a few thousand worldwide. India is part of a 13-country effort to double the animal's population by 2022, in part through increased monitoring and protection. However, for any species so diminished, protecting what we have left is not enough. Most of the world's remaining tigers live in tiny, guarded fragments, each of which is precarious on its own. Even in the absence of major threats such as poaching, isolation can leave animals at serious risk. Local shifts in the environment such as drought or the onset of disease can easily sweep these remnants away. How isolated are India's tigers? A recent study in Scientific Reports by researchers at the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), Bengaluru, sought to partially answer this question. India's remaining tigers number over 2,000, representing more than half of the world's tiger population. But these tigers are spread thin, across ...
