The projects we have recently worked on or are working on:

  1. In 2017, Tigers4Ever commenced work on a larger waterhole with a dry-lined saucer core for use by tigers and other wildlife in the Kithauli Core Zone of Bandhavgarh. Water to fill this waterhole will be sourced from underground wells via a Solar powered 5-HP borehole pump. Work is due to complete by the end of June 2017. This project is part of Tigers4Ever’s mission to reduce man-animal conflict by stabilising prey numbers and keeping wildlife within protected forest areas.
  2. In 2017, Tigers4Ever continued to work with the Global Tiger Conservation Society in Bandhavgarh and has donated 120 Education packs and ecology books to be distributed amongst the most needy children in rural locations around Bandhavgarh who would otherwise be unable to attend school.
  3. In 2017, Tigers4Ever donated 45 Education packs and ecology books to the children of Gohari village in Bandhavgarh’s buffer zone. This village has recently been troubled by 5 different tigers taking livestock and entering homes.
  4. In 2017, Tigers4Ever donated 50 Education packs and ecology books to the children of Mardari village in Bandhavgarh’s buffer zone. This village has also recently been troubled by 3 different tigers which have killed livestock and entered the homes of some villagers.
  5. In 2017, Tigers4Ever donated 5 Education packs and ecology books to the children of the new settlements between Tala and Raancha villages in Bandhavgarh’s buffer zone. These children currently make bricks and build homes for their families in the new settlements and will now have the opportunity to attend school.
  6. In 2017, Tigers4Ever has continued to provide anti-Poaching Patrols in the buffer Forests around Bandhavgarh. Our patrols are protecting up to two thirds of Bandhavgarh’s wild tiger population (which roam away from the protected core zone) from snares and poacher’s traps.
  7. In 2017, Tigers4Ever revised its Scholarship Scheme at the Bandhavgarh School of Art to enable a larger number of children to learn to draw, paint, etc., whilst using equipment and materials funded by Tigers4Ever.
  8. In 2016, Tigers4Ever continued to provide anti-Poaching Patrols in the Buffer Forests around Bandhavgarh. This project is the first of its kind in India and has resulted in a dramatic reduction in wild tiger deaths and man-animal conflict since its inception in July 2015. Tigers4Ever is delighted to report that there has only been one wild tiger death due to poaching or poisoning in the buffer forests of Bandhavgarh (as at 11 April 2017) since these patrols were launched (compared with 6 tiger deaths in 2014-15 and increases in cases of poisoning/poaching at most other Indian tiger reserves throughout 2016). Tigers4Ever received help from Tiger Awareness in funding the first 2 years of this project but now needs to find a new project collaborator or sponsor to assist with project funding from Summer 2017 if the project is to continue. Tigers4Ever needs to raise at least £720 (US$945) per month (£8640/US$10800 per annum) to keep Buffer Zone Patrolling at current levels.
  9. In 2016, Tigers4Ever commenced Construction of two permanent wildlife water-holes (costing up to £16500), and hopes to provide a solar powered borehole pump (costing around £3950) at a third waterhole site in 2017. These waterholes help to reduce man-animal conflict and provide a year-round supply of water for tigers and their prey; in the forests around Bandhavgarh.
  10. In 2016, Tigers4Ever was instrumental in influencing increased and changes in compensation paid to villagers in respect of loss of life and loss of livestock around Bandhavgarh National Park. The compensation which will now be paid to a family bereaved by a tiger attack has been quadrupled to Rs.400,000 (Rs.4 lakh). Villagers will now receive compensation for livestock killed by tigers and leopards even when this has occurred in the core area of the forest. These increases in compensation will help to reduce man-animal conflict as families will not suffer further loss when an income earner is lost.
  11. In 2016, Tigers4Ever erected 3 permanent warning notices in the buffer forests of Bandhavgarh to warn villagers of the dangers of the forest and the consequences of illegal activities therein.
  12. In 2016, Tigers4Ever provided uniforms, sturdy shoes/boots, caps, belts, canes, water-bottles, first-aid kits and high quality waterproofed head-torches with spare batteries for the Tigers4Ever Buffer Zone Poaching Patrollers.
  13. In addition, in 2016, Tigers4Ever provided 4 bicycles and 48 high quality waterproofed  head-torches with 288 batteries including spares for forest patrols protecting tigers from poachers around Bandhavgarh.
  14. In 2016 Tigers4Ever also provided 200 Education Packs and Ecology Books for the children of Tala, Ranchha and Barkhera villages including the children of the forest guides. The 3 Tigers4Ever Scholarship students at the Bandhavgarh School of Art for 2015-16: Praveen Chaturvedi, Nitin Berman and Akash Upadhyay have now completed their studies. Recruitment is currently underway to identify 3 new students for 2016-17. Tigers4Ever has funded 3 Scholarships for the new students for 2016-17. We are currently fundraising to raise sufficient funds to continue these Scholarships beyond 2016-17.
  15. We continue to raise funding for 398 more head torches, more bicycles, clothing, first aid kits and other essential equipment for forest patrols in Bandhavgarh as part of our ongoing work for 2016-17 and beyond. We are also fundraising for our vital education projects.
  16. Tigers4Ever would also like to raise £9040 to help fund a new patrol vehicle for the Tigers4Ever Buffer Zone Poaching Patrollers, please donate if you can help.
  17. Tigers4Ever is also looking to raise £1500 to set up a scheme to assist families bereaved by tiger attacks with the set up of a new income stream from either a small shop or clothing production. The funds raised will help with business set-up costs for the bereaved families.
  18. In July 2015, Tigers4Ever launched its Buffer Zone Poaching Patrol Project in the buffer forests of Bandhavgarh, which is the first project of its kind. The Tigers4Ever team of 12 patrollers supported by 3 Forest Department rangers search the 182 km buffer forest boundary surrounding the core protected area, disabling and removing poachers’ traps to help save the lives of tigers and leopards in the area. To maintain this project in coming years Tigers4Ever needs to raise at least £720 per month to cover project costs. Tigers4Ever has collaborated with Tiger Awareness during 2015-16  and 2016-17  to fund this Project.
  19. In 2015 we provided 48 high quality head torches & 288 batteries for the forest patrols protecting tigers from poachers around Bandhavgarh National Park. We also provided 100 Permethrin-treated handmade Mosquito Nets, 8 bicycles, 100 first-aid kits and 3 Snake Capture & Rescue Kits for the 2015-16 season. In 2015 we also provided 400 Education Packs and Ecology Books for the children of Majhkheta  Damna, Devri and Barkhera and for the children of the forest patrollers who protect the wild tigers. Tigers4Ever has continued to fund Scholarships for 3 students at the Bandhavgarh School of Art for 2015-16 for 2014-15 are: Praveen Chaturvedi, Nitin Berman and Akash Upadhyay. We currently looking at the possibility of expanding the Scholarships to include a formal qualification in the future and will seek to raise sufficient funds to continue these Scholarships beyond 2015-16.
  20. In 2014 we provided 40 head torches for the forest patrols protecting tigers from poachers around Bandhavgarh National Park. We also provided 150 warm raincoats and pairs of waterproof trousers for the patrollers to use during the monsoon, together with 4 more bicycles and 100 first-aid kits for the 2014-15 season. In 2014 we also provided 500 education packs for the children of Kachhauhan, Damna, and Gata villages together with the 3 communities which comprise Ghanghod village, and for the children of the forest patrollers who protect the wild tigers. Tigers4Ever continued to fund 3 Scholarships for students at the Bandhavgarh School of Art for 2014-15 for: Praveen Chaturvedi, Nitin Berman and Akash Upadhyay.
  21. In 2013 we provided 350 education packs for the children of Patour, Rancha and Dobha villages near Bandhavgarh; and funded 3 Scholarships for: Praveen Chaturvedi, Nitin Berman and Sonali Berman, at the Bandhavgarh School of Art.  In 2013 we also provided 4 bicycles and 50 head torches for Bandhavgarh forest patrols.
  22. In 2012 we provided education packs for the children of Khursarvah and Rancha villages; and a bereavement payment (collaboration with Save the Stripes) to the widow and child of a villager who had been killed by an old tiger whilst grazing his cattle near Bandhavgarh National Park.
  23. In 2011 we provided mosquito nets and insect proof clothing for forest patrols in Bandhavgarh National Park.
  24. Our Fundraising Events in 2012-2016 and our 2013-2016 Cycle Events were held to raise funds for wild tiger conservation projects at ground level: including funding 3 ongoing Scholarships for promising art students at the Bandhavgarh School of Art; and providing further education packs for the children of the villages around Bandhavgarh together with vital equipment required by forest patrollers.
  25. Tigers4Ever is available to give talks and presentations at schools, clubs and other locations throughout the UK, on request.
