Other Carnivores

Camera trap surveys carried out by WCS – India to estimate tiger and leopard densities across India have produced valuable occurrence records for several rare and elusive carnivores such as the clouded leopard, Malayan sun bear, marbled cat, hog badger, fishing cat and ratel. In addition, we have supported research projects specifically directed at carnivores other than tigers and leopards.

For his doctoral research, WCS – India staff Devcharan Jathanna worked on generating a better understanding of the biology and ecology of Western Ghats small carnivore species that are relevant to their conservation, using a diversity of approaches. Carnivore distribution in semi-arid landscapes, especially of wolves, has also been an area of work the organisation is involved in.
