The project explores the prevalence and herd immunity in livestock in villages in and around important tiger reserves and assesses the risk factors that could catalyse disease transmission to wild ungulates. Any epidemic affecting wild ungulates will in turn have detrimental impact on tiger populations, as wild ungulates such as spotted deer, gaur, and sambar comprise an essential component of tiger’s prey. WCT’s project is striving to identify, address, and contain diseases affecting wildlife.
