OUR MISSION

Our ultimate goal is to Give wild tigers a wild future by eliminating tiger deaths due to poaching, poisoning or retaliatory attacks.
With India home to more than two thirds of the world's wild tigers, it is vital we protect their populations for generations to come.

OUR CHALLENGES

POACHING

India is home to two thirds of the world's last remaining wild tigers. Poaching has decimated global wild tiger populations by over 97 percent in 100 years. Without protection from snares and traps the long-term survival of all wild tiger populations is in doubt.

DROUGHT

In the last 6 years, forest degradation and climate change have led to longer drought seasons in Bandhavgarh. When wildlife waterholes become dry, human-wildlife conflict increases and wild tigers die.

HUMAN-ANIMAL CONFLICT

The burgeoning human population has decimated India's wild tiger habitat, increasing incidents of human-animal conflict due to lack of food for prey & predators.

AVAILABLE HABITAT

India's National Parks have a dense tiger populations. As populations increase tigers are forced to leave the park to establish their own territory. The challenge is most tiger habitats in the country now exist as 'islands'.

OUR PROJECTS

Our aim is to give wild tigers a wild future. We do this by protecting tigers with buffer zone poaching patrols, off-setting the effects of drought by building waterholes and reducing human-animal conflict through education.

PROTECT BANDHAVGARH'S TIGERS FROM POACHERS

By providing anti-poaching patrols in the buffer forests around Bandhavgarh we protect tigers from poaching by removing snares and helping to eliminate other illicit activities such as illegal logging so tigers can walk their forests safely. The work of our patrols reduces the impact that these illicit activities have on precious tiger habitat. Whilst our work with local communities helps to change attitudes towards poaching and further support the long-term survival of wild tigers

WATER FOR BANDHAVGARH’S TIGERS

Our waterhole project provides a solar powered borehole pump systems for permanent medium-large waterholes for tigers and other wildlife. The bore-well uses underground sources to provide wildlife water year-round. Surplus water returns via soakaway systems. Since 2017 we’ve provided year-round water via 11 waterholes for at least 56 tigers and countless other wildlife. This has reduced human-animal conflict due to crop and livestock raiding in nearby villages, leading to fewer retaliatory poisonings of predators. Your donation will help us to further reduce human-animal conflict and save many animals via the provision of more permanent wildlife waterholes.

EDUCATION HELPS TO SAVE WILD TIGERS

Every education pack we distribute in the wider tiger community will give a child a chance to improve their critical literacy skills; future employment prospects & reduce their dependency on the land. We work in villages and with a local Indian NGO to deliver pop-up nature schools to the poorest children. Literate adults can become protectors of wildlife and forest habitat, rather than destroying it for agriculture. Thus reducing the impact on wildlife and incidents of human-animal conflict. Education also discourages tiger poaching as an alternative income source.
