Our jackal is the only island subspecies of the Eurasian Golden Jackal across its range.
Historically, it was even considered a species endemic to Sri Lanka. It is the sole wild dog on the island and stands as the third-largest carnivore present. These features already make it an iconic species, but for some reason, it has been overlooked. Photographers have missed its stunning moves, artists have forgotten to paint it, tourists hardly ask for sightings, and scientists failed to study it. Instead, the narrative of our Nariya is abandoned to folk-lore-a cunning, selfish creature, a forgotten soul that nobody really likes.

The Way of the Jackal provides a datailed description of the Sri Lankan Jackal including its  physical characteristics, behavior, social life, and vocalization. It also includes field techniques to study the species methods to mitigate conflict, and its potential as a high-value species in wildlife tourism. By placing the Nariya of the rural folk in the limelight, this book will serve as a catalyst for awareness, research, conservation, and harnessing the economic potential of the wild dog of Sri Lanka.
