Slideshow: basket weaving in aid of tigers

8 December 2015

Between 26 November and 25 December 2015, 24 village women will attend basket-weaving workshops as part of our initiative for tiger protection in the Suklaphanta Wildlife Reserve, in Nepal.

 These baskets are destined for sale and local use; basket-making offers local communities an economic activity that helps limit their use of natural resources. Indeed, this region is also the habitat of the Bengal tiger, which suffers the effects of high human pressure on the forest, the reduction of forested area, and a lack of prey. This alternative economic activity is one illustration of how our range of initiatives provides solutions that improve the lives of both tigers and villagers.

See how the training is progressing, in images.
