Who we are

 

On the eastern coast of India, lies the state of West Bengal, home to a rich and bewildering variety of wildlife. From the famous Royal Bengal tiger that stalks its prey with legendary cunningness in the Gangetic delta, to the one-horned Indian Rhinoceros and the leopard lurking in the foothills of the Himalayas, West Bengal boasts an amazing array of flora and fauna that rivals the finest such collection of species anywhere in the world. Promoted by the government's Wild Life Wing this site has three clear objectives:

Focus on Wildlife
Develop Eco-tourism
Attract and share innovative ideas to lessen human-animal conflict
