Status of tigers, co-predators and prey in the Wayanad wildlife sanctuary

The Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary of Kerala is located in one of the most important tiger landscapes in the world harbouring perhaps the largest contiguous tiger population in India. Apart from tigers, these forests are home to a diverse array of floral and faunal species underlining the status of the Western Ghats as a global Biodiversity Hotspot. This report provides the results of a tiger monitoring study undertaken jointly by the Kerala Forest Department and WWF-India.
