Support Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) Wild Tiger Conservation Program
WTI's Wild Tiger Conservation Mission: To preserve India's tigers through sustainable forest conservation, community partnerships, education, anti-poaching efforts, tiger rescue and research.
Wildlife Trust of India and National Wildlife Humane Society have forged an alliance to address the critical issues facing the survival of India's tigers. You can help by donating to support the following three projects initiated by the Wildlife Trust of India in an effort to preserve tigers.
UTTAR PRADESH TIGER CONSERVATION PROJECT
Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Uttar Pradesh Forest Department to assist the authorities in tiger conservation in the state through the UP Tiger Conservation Project. The project takes a multi-pronged approach including conflict mitigation involving biologists, sociologists and veterinarians, tiger status monitoring and capacity building of Forest Department staff.
These efforts include, but not limited to; Tiger Status Monitoring, Human–Tiger Conflict Mitigation, Rapid Response Teams and Capacity Building and Training.
VALMIKI CONSERVATION PROJECT
In 2003, Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) in collaboration with Bihar Forest Department initiated the Valmiki Conservation Project with the support of the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). The project aims to revive interest in conservation of Valmiki and to facilitate recovery of the area as a viable tiger habitat.
THERE ARE 3 COMPONENTS TO THIS IMPORTANT TIGER PROJECT
1. The Tiger and Prey Monitoring
Undertaking tiger population density estimation through photographic capture-recapture sampling method, generating abundance indices of principal prey based on dung/pellet count, and attempting calibration of pellet-based abundance indices with line transect based density estimates of prey species. Analysis of tiger scats is also being done to determine composition of prey species in tiger diet.
2. Community-based Conservation
This component aims to bring about eco-development and conservation awareness in nearby villages to minimise human disturbances in Valmiki.
3. Anti-poaching and Trade Control
This component aims at enhancing enforcement abilities of the Forest Department to minimise threats from poachers and wildlife traffickers. Frontline forest staff are provided with basic field equipment and are trained to tackle illegal activities within the protected area*.
