Binturong & Small-Clawed Otter Join Kaziranga National Park

Binturong & Small-Clawed Otter Join Kaziranga National Park

Kaziranga National Park, famed for its one-horned rhinos, has recently identified two new mammal species – the binturong and the small-clawed otter, both protected under Schedule I of the Wildlife Protection Act of 1972. This discovery brings the park’s total mammal count to 37.

These discoveries highlight the vital role of conservation efforts and training programs in Kaziranga National Park.

The binturong’s presence expands its known range in India, while the increased otter sightings indicate a thriving population within the park.

The presence of these diverse mammals, each with its unique ecological role, contributes to the health and resilience of Kaziranga’s ecosystem.

Their protection and continued monitoring are crucial for maintaining the park’s rich biodiversity and securing a future for these fascinating creatures.
