The Next Phase

When we launched our Patrolling Equipment project in late Summer 2022, we knew that the pandemic had hit hard and we couldn’t keep pace with the renewal and replacement kit needs for the brave men and women who risk their lives to keep wild tigers safe, from our patrolling costs alone.

Winter Challenges

It is hard to imagine that Winter is here already. I spoke with our patrolling co-ordinator a short while ago and he said: “It’s getting quite cold here now!” That was quite a surprise, usually we’re into December before the first mentions of cold. Well, 2023 has been a strange year weatherwise so perhaps I…

Coping with Changes

The monsoon season seemed to fly by this year, perhaps it was because such a lot happened? Once again monsoon rainfall was variable and stop start in nature. Such conditions present many challenges for our anti-poaching patrollers and those people who live with wildlife at their door. Before I go on, I must thank you…

Monsoon Rains and Wildlife Conflict

To quote one of our most senior anti-poaching patrollers “This has been the strangest September monsoon I can remember since 1995!” Why? I asked. The response was straight to the point: more rain, more thunderstorms, more tiger deaths and more human deaths! It wasn’t the response I had hoped for; but with daily contact with…
