Deccan thorn scrub forests

WWF Abstract

This ecoregion once teemed with tigers and Asian elephants. However, as the habitat has been destroyed and an increasing human population demands more land, only small pockets of habitat remain. These are often too small for tigers and Asian elephants to survive in, and, as a result, these animals are now rare here.
