Save Tiger Trips


save_tiger_trips

The tiger, largest of all cats & symbol of power, one of the most fascinating species on the Earth. This wild species is also under severe threat of extinction. Across its habitats, tigers are being poisoned, electrocuted, blown up by land mines, trapped, snared, shot and captured. Wildlife protection, in the present scenario, requires a widely distributed Information Network using state-of- the art information and communication technology.  
Your journey to tiger land is directly related to saving this unique animal and providing local communities with the socio-economic, ethical and environmental incentives to conserve their environment and culture for future generation.
