Summary

A century ago there were an estimated 100,000 tigers across Asia, but numbers have since dropped by 96% to just 4,000. Today, tigers are classified as Endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). We are raising funds to protect tigers in one of their last strongholds, the Satpuda landscape, by working with local NGOs to promote tiger conservation and co-existence through community programmes.

Challenge

Wild tigers face many threats including persecution as a result of human-wildlife conflict, poaching and habitat loss due to deforestation. India is the second-most populated country in the world, and has experienced such rapid urbanisation that space for wildlife is under exceptional pressure. Safeguarding tiger populations in central India and protecting habitats is vital. Educating communities about conservation and co-existence will improve life chances for humans and tigers alike.

Solution

Born Free supports Indian NGOs working within their own communities to find solutions to human-wildlife conflict, and promote genuine co-existence. Supporting this appeal will help us work in additional communities, increase our education initiatives and health and social development drives, provide conservation training and employment opportunities which minimise human contact with tigers and prevent conflict, and create more protected areas for wildlife to flourish.

Long-Term Impact

In the last 10 years, tiger numbers have increased to over 400 across the Satpuda landscape. The generous support we receive through this appeal will help Born Free increase our efforts and expand into new areas. We can work more widely to counter the causes of this crisis - in the Satpuda landscape and across Asia. Through a range of conservation initiatives, we will provide support and opportunities for communities living alongside tigers, and save wild tigers for future generations.
