Project Tiger

Information on Project Tiger

Spotting Tiger has become very rare now a days in India and the main reason behind this is the unwanted killing of Tigers on large scale. Although the use of Tiger skin has been banned by the Indian Government, but its smuggling for rugs and fur coats is still going in large quantity. They are also killed because of medicinal properties they have and it is the main reason they are traded.

Objective of Project Tiger

Still efforts are continuously made to preserve these magnificent predators from extinction. The Project tiger was launched in India in 1972 as conservation programme for saving the Indian Tiger Population. Some of the best examples of this programmes success can be seen in the national parks situated in the high Himalayan region, to the mangrove swamps of the Sundarbans and the thorny scrubs of Rajasthan. But more wildlife conservation laws and awareness among people is still required to make Indian sanctuaries a safe haven for tigers.
