Deccan Conservation Foundation is actively involved in the conservation and protection of wildlife habitats of Koppal district. We have identified the following habitats of Indian Wolf. They are:
1) Twalahalla Community Reserve
2) Mandalamari Protected Area and Community Reserve
3) Bankapura Reserved Forest

Deccan Conservation Foundation along with Karnataka Forest Department’s permission has installed camera traps to observe the wildlife movement, as it was an ideal habitat for Sloth Bear, Leopard, Striped Hyena and Indian Grey Wolf

The project aims at conservation and management of endangered rare, and threatened major fauna including Indian Grey Wolf and associated species in Koppal district in North Karnataka and to secure their future by conservation and awareness programs.

Deccan Conservation Foundation is at the fore front of the efforts to conserve, preserve and protect this region’s natural heritage, wilderness and wildlife. We hope to get the support and involvement of the scientific community, local government bodies, opinion makers and grass root level communities in our conservation activities.
