New Trustees: Tigers4Ever is currently in the process of appointing further new trustees who will help us to face our future challenges in wild tiger conservation over the next three years or more. Once these appointments are finalised the new trustees’ details and photographs will be added to this page.

Lauren Maddox became Tigers4Ever’s second Patron on 28 February 2017.  

Lauren has been an animal activist for over 10 years & first became a vegetarian when she was little, becoming a raw vegan about 13 years ago. She is the presenter of the documentary currently in production, called 'Bearing Witness', being filmed in Toronto, Canada, England, Europe & across the U.S. as well as Asia. Lauren is actively involved with the Save Movement whose groups have spread all across Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe with vigils to pay respect for the lives of thousands of farmed animals, such as pigs, chickens, ducks, rabbits & fish, who are on their way to slaughter houses across the World. Lauren says “As you read these very words, genocide is taking place on a mass scale to so many species”. Lauren believes that we have to stand up for the innocent sentient beings who don't have a voice & raising awareness on this as well as in relation to animals that are about to become killed, so as to become extinct, is what she is dedicating her life to.  

Lauren uses film as a medium to help raise consciousness on the planet & so that everyone realises that all animals have a soul & must be treated the same as any other being.  Lauren says “We are all one & must be treated that way, if there is ever to be peace in this World”. She will be acting in films such as 'A Tiger's Cry', co-produced by Susan Fisher-Kaufman (which she is currently helping to raise investment funds for) & also writing, creating documentaries concerning animals who don't have compassion shown to them & to draw light on those being killed or whom are being treated inhumanely. She will also do a documentary in 2019 about Cetaceans, Dolphins, Whales, Sea lions & turtles in the ocean & how they’re ill treated & get caught in nets - for her work as an Ambassador for Sea Shepherd, U.S.A.

Lauren is proud to have been chosen as a Patron for Tigers4Ever & hopes to create a documentary about our much needed aid & work to stop Tigers from being killed in Bandhavgarh, India. Poaching is bringing tiger numbers dangerously low & if it continues, they will become extinct. Lauren is looking forward to going out to India with Tigers4Ever in 2018 or 2019 to see the villages and to film their hard work.

Susan Fisher-Kaufman became a Tigers4Ever Patron in August 2017.

Susan owns the copyright and is the Producer of a new film “A Tiger’s Cry” which documents the lives of a couple struggling to save wild tigers and their diminishing habitat spanning a period of over 70 years.

Susan is also a long time campaigner for animal & human welfare, & has promoted her interests in these areas through a series of campaigns & fundraising initiatives.

Susan will, through her role as Tigers4Ever Patron, promote the work being done by us to give wild tigers wild futures and raise awareness of the day to day threats facing wild tiger survival.
