There is a tremendous wealth of mega-biodiversity in the world. But the very existence of this wealth is under threat due to habitat destruction, pushing animals towards inbreeding depression and thereby paving way for their extinction. This has made essential human intervention and assisted reproductive technologies. Thus, the issues of conservation of wildlife and biodiversity have become the need of the hour, especially in terms of policy making at the government level.

Yu D eserve, We Conserve: A Biotechnological Approach to Wildlife Conservation contains 16 articles by scientists engaged in research on the conservation of wildlife, role of reproductive technologies and modern approaches being followed in wildlife conservation. It also deals with various techniques used in field conditions such as chemical capture, molecular genetics, ultrasonography, cryopreservation, wildlife forensics, etc

The present book will be of special interest to professionals engaged in forest and environment related activities, particularly wildlife conservationists, students pursuing their career in veterinary discipline of wild animals and policy makers. It will also be useful for nature enthusiasts, who have an interest in wildlife.
