Our ultimate goal is to protect wild tigers from extinction by eliminating tiger deaths due to poaching, poisoning or retaliatory attacks.
With India home to approximately 70% of all remaining wild tigers it is vital we protect their populations for generations to come.
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 are protecting tigers in a key area for poaching, removing snares so tigers can walk the forests safely. Our patrols help to eliminate other illicit activities in buffer forests including logging/resource harvesting. Eliminating illicit activities reduces the impact on precious tiger habitat. Our work with local communities helps change attitudes towards poaching & further support the long-term survival of wild tigers
WATER FOR BANDHAVGARH’S TIGERS
The project will provide a solar powered borehole pump system for a medium-large waterhole for tigers/other wildlife. The bore-well uses underground sources to provide wildlife water year-round. Surplus water returns via soak away systems. We installed 2 systems in 2018 to provide water for 8 tigers & countless other wildlife. This has reduced human-animal conflict in nearby villages. Donations will help to reduce human-animal conflict & save many animals via the provision of year-round water.
EDUCATION HELPS TO SAVE WILD TIGERS
500 education packs will give 500 kids a chance to improve critical literacy skills; future employment prospects & reduce their dependency on land. We work in villages & with a local NGO to deliver pop-up nature schools to the poorest children. Literate adults can get jobs protecting wildlife & its habitat, rather than destroying it for agriculture. This reduces the impact on wildlife & reduces incidents of human-animal conflict, whilst discouraging tiger poaching as an alternative income source.
