Our ancient scriptures and epics are testimony to our spectacular wildlife heritage. Our ancestors worshipped Nature and considered themselves as the custodian of wildlife.The status of animals in the wild, particularly large mammals, act as barometers of the health of their natural habitats. Wildlife management and conservation, therefore, should not narrowly focus on practices that are heavily slanted towards animals to the exclusion of plant life that form a part of the food chain of all living creatures. Further, the people’s involvement is crucial to protection and conservation of our wildlife population.This volume is a source material for wildlife conservationists and also useful for lay persons interested in wildlife preservation.
