During my recent visit to Tamil Nadu, I came to know about their state animal. What disappoints me is that this endangered animal has a population of only 3,000 left in India and is still under threat due to poaching. In fact, tiger projects are quite successful compared to conservation of other rare animals like Tahr and One Horned Rhinoceros. Do you agree?

What is a Tahr? Where in India can this animal be found apart from the Nilgiri Tahr of Tamil Nadu?

Tahr is a species of Wild Goat. There are probably 2 types of Tahr in India, Nilgiri Tahr and the Himalayan Tahr.

The Nilgiri Tahr population is continuously decreasing due to continuous poaching activities and Eucalyptus cultivation hampering its habitat.
