TOFTigers funded Village Guardians protect stray tiger in Rajasthan

14 June 2018

Since October 2017, Tigerwatch’s Village Wildlife Volunteers relentlessly tracked & monitored the straying male Tiger T-91 aka ‘ Cowboy ‘ in the forests of Bundi , and kept him safe from threats like poachers ( who were soon apprehended after being identified on the Volunteer’s camera traps).

T-91 was finally relocated to the Mukundara Hills Tiger Reserve ( Rajasthan’s newest Tiger Reserve)  in a large collaborative operation with the Forest Dept of Rajasthan. We would like to thank the Hon'ble Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Smt Vasundhara Raje for her blessings and support throughout this tremendous process.

The Village Wildlife Volunteer Programme is supported by Toftigers India & the RTCF ( Ranthambhore Forest Dept Fund)
