This programme essentially targets research on the tiger, its habitat and its preys in the state of Assam in India.
Thanks to a system of automated photography, the organisation Aaranyak collects data to provide a better understanding of the feline’s status as well as solutions that might be effective for its conservation. The organisation also develops educational campaigns, encourages the villagers to get involved in this cause and supports community patrols, notably by providing equipment.
Here are some examples of how your donations could be used for species conservation and research on the tiger in India:
- Wages for a tribal assistant for 3-4 days
- Food for a small team for one day
