Tiger Conservation in India

Overall rating: 0 based on 0 reviews

Program Description

This volunteer project combines wildlife conservation with community work aimed at reducing human-animal conflict and increasing a number of initiatives to promote more sustainable and alternative living for those living on the edge of Kanha National Park.

Your donation will be used to take tribal children from the local school into the national park; to purchase camera traps for the monitoring of tigers and other mammals in the buffer zones of the Kanha Tiger Reserve and to help provide essential health care to villagers.

The project will see volunteers become engaged with local communities through assisting in an on-going project making a village plastic free, a visit to the tribal museum, meeting local artists, helping locals make a more sustainable fuel source, and working with children in a local school.

You will become well versed in all aspects of tiger conservation through talks by the project facilitators covering subjects from the impacts of tourism on tigers to the illegal trade in tiger body parts. As well as enjoying a number of safaris, you will assist in tracking animals on foot and from a 4x4 vehicle, recording the movement of tigers and other wildlife by setting up and monitoring camera traps and taking impression pads of animal tracks.

Highlights

Alongside this productive volunteering you will have many opportunities to see the beautiful big cats during numerous safaris within the park. You will engage in a wide variety of activities as part of the project, involving yourself with the local community and supporting areas of conservation.
