EcoSystems-India is a local NGO that was set up in order to implement the conservation activities of the PHCP on the ground in Assam, including the management of the captive-breeding centres and leading the reintroductions of animals back into the wild.
Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust first became involved in the conservation of the pygmy hog in 1971. Since then the expertise of the organisation in establishing successful captive-breeding populations in-country and working with species on the brink of extinction has been critical in the development of the Pygmy Hog Conservation Programme
The IUCN/SSC Wild Pig Specialist Group was originally established by Durrell’s William Oliver who coordinated the group for over 32 years. As active partners of the PHCP the IUCN specialist group continues to provide expert advice on activities proposed by the conservation programme.
