Centre for Wildlife Studies (CWS), is a non-profit trust based in
Bangalore, India. Inspired by the pioneering tiger studies of Dr.
George Schaller of the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), New York,
founder-trustee Dr. Ullas Karanth established CWS in 1984. Centre for Wildlife Studies is now
an internationally recognized centre of excellence in the arenas of
wildlife research, training, formal education and conservation.
Centre for Wildlife Studies practices science-based conservation, with special emphasis on the
ecology and conservation of the tiger and other large mammals. CWS
works in collaboration with Central and State Governments in India to
promote conservation of wildlife and wild lands and is additionally
supported by several international and national charities, agencies
and donors. CWS has implemented several projects involving wildlife
research, education, training, outreach and site-based conservation at
regional and national levels.
CWS believes that wildlife conservation involves long-term work at key conservation sites, and therefore focuses on education and capacity building of Indian nationals and civil society groups.
