The project relies on the participation of individuals to contribute to crocodiles’ sightings and other information from India. We are looking for records and/or images of the three species of crocodilians found in India. This citizen science initiative allows you to participate and help, by sharing relevant information associated with their sighting, breeding status, and other biological information that any individual might have observed.
Croc Watch is a citizen science initiative to collect information on the three crocodilian species found in India and to create a database that can aid in the research and conservation of these species.
This information while providing the extant of the current distribution of three crocodilian species will also help identify key areas for crocodile conservation across the country, which in turn may lead to help make decisions for their long-term conservation and management in India. This information will be available to interested individuals and institutions concerned with the research and management of the species.
