Your impact on Mizoram's biodiversity

Greetings from Wildlife Trust of India (WTI)

We are delighted to share a heartening update made possible by your invaluable support. Thanks to your contributions, we continued to protect Mizoram's snake species and their habitats.

Back in 2021, your funding kick-started a vital project aimed at addressing snake bites and conflicts in Mizoram's community reserve forests. This initiative spurred the formation of the Mizoram Zoological Society, comprising dedicated volunteers to tackle human-snake conflict. Last year, we successfully rescued and released 95 king cobra hatchlings into their natural environment, thanks to your generosity.

Fast forward to November 2023, we received reports of abandoned nests of King Cobras and Mountain Pit Vipers. Our volunteers sprang into action, carefully monitoring the nests and ensuring the safety of the eggs. Through meticulous care and the support of Mizoram University, we witnessed the hatching of 61 king cobras, 6 mountain pit vipers, and an unexpected arrival of 20 red-tailed bamboo pit viper hatchlings.

Following the successful hatching, our team embarked on a plan to release these hatchlings into the wild. With your backing, we provided these hatchlings with the opportunity to thrive in their natural habitat once more.

On the 7th and 9th of February, 2024, respectively, the first and second batches of king cobras, mountain pit vipers, and red-tailed bamboo pit viper snakelets were released into the Terei range and Phuldungsui forest ranges of Dampa Tiger Reserve in Mizoram.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude for your continued support. Your contributions have played a crucial role in protecting Mizoram's snake population.

With sincere appreciation,

Team WTI
