  • Projects

    Assessing the population status, ecology and conservation of caracal in the selected protected area (NA)
    This study will be conducted in various protected areas i.e. Ranthambhore National Park, Sawai Mann Singh Wildlife Sanctuary (WLS), Ramgarh Visdhari WLS, Chambal WLS and Kailadevi WLS, which are situated in the semi-arid part of Rajasthan, India to assessing the population status, ecology and conservation of caracal by (Panthera)

    Extinct or alive; re-investigating the distribution of Critically Endangered Himalayan Quail in Indi(MLN College Yamuna Nagar)
    Himalayan Quail is known only from the western Himalayas in Uttaranchal, north-western India, This species is known to the mankind through a dozen specimens procured from Jharipani, Banog and Bhadraj (behind Mussorie) and Sher Ka Danda (Nainital). All these areas are located in the lower Western Himalayan ranges in the state of Uttarakhand in India. Most of these specimens were shot during winter (except once) from the steep grasslands and scrub openings on south facing slope crests betwby (Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation Fund )
