Investigation into poaching and illegal trade 2000
This Wildlife Protection Society India project focused on intelligence gathering on poachers and traders and providing information and advice to the Indian Government. During five months from February 2000 thirteen active wildlife traders were arrested and one tiger skin amongst many other animal parts were seized. Between January and July 2000, the deaths of 34 wild tigers were investigated. Reports show that there has been an upsurge in tiger poaching.
