India's Caracal Conservation: A Critical Status Report.



  Oct 18, 2023

The Critical Status of India’s Caracal



How many caracals are left in India?

An estimated 50 caracals remain, primarily in clusters in Rajasthan and Gujarat.

Why is the caracal critically endangered?

The factors leading to the decline in population are still unknown, although experts speculate it could be due to a species-specific disease. More data is needed for confirmation.

Are there conservation efforts?

Yes, in 2021, the National Biodiversity Wildlife Board announced a Species Recovery Plan for 22 species in India, including the caracal, to aid in conservation and population revival.

The caracal, known for its distinctive long-tufted ears and sandy-brown coat, faces a critical threat in India, with only small populations remaining in the western regions. Conservation efforts are essential to prevent its extinction.
