Interventions in Wild Animal Health - Field Sites

sariska, tiger reserve, national park

Sariska Tiger Reserve

The bulk of your field exercises and teaching will occur in Sariska Tiger Reserve, an area 866km2 in size, located in Rajasthan. The Park was declared a wildlife reserve in 1955 and then a tiger reserve in 1978. 

Sariska is part of India's project tiger and in recent years carried out a tiger relocation scheme due to the dessimation of tiger numbers in the park, making it an excellent base to learn about conservation management.

The Park also benefits from a wide range of ungulate, avian and predator species which allow a wide range of field techniques and opportunities for observations to be made during the course. You will also have the opportunity to witness human-wildlife interactions first hand, due to the many villages and temples located within the park.
