Indian Wildlife Lab


Test tube tiger kittens and cloned cheetahs are just two of the ambitious aims of the Laboratory for the Conservation of Endangered Species in Hyderabad.

The Indian research centre is taking the hi-tech approach to the preservation of the country's wildlife.

Andrew Luck-Baker pays a visit and talks to scientists there about cloning big cats and catching poachers with DNA forensics.

He also hears about artificial insemination programmes for endangered antelopes, deer and vultures.
