Join us to learn about lions, tigers and wolves of India and their prey, as well as human-wolf conflicts. Dr. Yadvendradev Jhala is a senior professor and dean at the Wildlife Institute of India. He is also a research associate of the Genetics Program in the National Museum of Natural History at the Smithsonian Institute and is the IUCN wolf specialist for India. He is a leading expert and influential thinker on aspects of human-wolf conflicts.
Dr. Jhala has researched carnivores and ungulates in India for the past 30 years, including Indian wolves, tigers, Asiatic lions, snow leopards, striped hyenas, golden jackal, Indian fox, blackbuck, spotted deer, and greater one horned rhinoceros.
In 1987 Jhala worked with Dr. David Mech and Dr. Rolf Peterson to learn about wolf research, which he subsequently applied in India. Jhala’s research and country scale monitoring of tiger populations for the past 15 years has resulted in major policy and changes in wildlife management practices in India.
