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 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 from poaching by removing snares and helping to eliminate other illicit activities such as illegal logging so tigers can walk the forests safely. Our patrols work helps to reduce the impact that these 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
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.
