Tiger Trust



Kailash Sankhla,  Tiger Man of IndiaThe Tiger Trust is a non-profit foundation established as an outgrowth of India's Tiger Project, begun in the early 1970s by naturalist Kailash Sankhala, (shown above),
under the patronage of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

At the Tiger Trust, our mission is to save the tiger and preserve its natural habitat in India.
On this site, you can learn about the Tiger Trust, the legacy of Kailash Sankhala, the founder of our organization, and projects that we are currently working on.

In addition, we have designed this site to serve as an informational resource for learning more about the tiger. Peruse excerpts of The Return of the Tiger, a book by Kailash Sankhala, found of the Tiger Trust, or scan our reading list of books about the tiger in Tiger Tales.

View action portraits of real tigers in India or catch up on the latest news of our efforts on tiger conservation.
In Tiger Tracks, we have collected a listing of links to other WWW sites about the tiger, India and other wildlife conservation sites.

Background
India's jungles, ranging from lush evergreen tropical rain forests in the East to the dry deciduous desert shrub in the West, are home to a wide spectrum of wild animals, including lions, tigers, leopards and snow leopards and elephants, gaur, wild buffaloes, rhinoceros, eight species of deer and many primates among the 350 mammal species. Over 2,000 species of birds, varieties of crocodiles, turtles, snakes, lizards and over 5,000 insects, including beautiful butterflies, enrich India's fauna.

To preserve its wildlands and wildlife, India has set aside over 1.2 million square kilometers in 525 protected areas as National Parks, Sanctuaries and reserves. But this is only 3.6 percent of a land area where human population exceeding 800 million is exerting excessive pressure on the natural resources. The only way to preserve India's wildlife is to enhance environmental awareness of the people through educational and research programs. To meet this urgent need, a foundationwas registered as a conservation trust. Since the tiger is the spirit of the Indian Jungle and the Founder was closely associated with its revival, he chose to call the foundation - TIGER TRUST
