About CBSG South Asia

CBSG South Asia is active in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. We work closely with IUCN SSC CBSG, other IUCN specialist groups, our own taxon and thematic networks, and host organizations (ZOO, WILD, & SAZARC). CBSG India, started by Sally Walker in 1990, was the first CBSG regional network. It was absorbed into CBSG South Asia in 2000. We now have 167 members in 7 countries.

CBSG South Asia’s recent activities include:

  • Assessment of Freshwater Fish and Mayflies
  • Indian Alliance for Zero Extinction projects
  • Evaulation and impact of amphibian chytrid fungus on the threatened and endemic species of the Western Ghats
