In 2011, a team of 11 researchers from the National Centre for Biological Sciences, Bangalore, conducted a rapid assessment to prioritise areas of conservation interest in Nagaland. The survey covered 10 sites across 7 districts of the state, viz., Mokokchung, Mon, Peren, Kohima, Phek, Kiphire and Tuensang. All sightings of mammals, birds and herpetofauna were documented. In order to maximise the abilities to detect mammalian species, latest tools such as camera traps were deployed by trained wildlife biologists. Findings from the survey along with eminent conservation threats specific to each site and potential recommendations to mitigate the same have been documented in the attached report.
