Objectives

Tigers4Ever is a small UK based Registered Charity (Number: 1160528) originally established as a not-for-profit organisation in 2010. We raise awareness of the wild tigers’ plight; and try to inspire people to support our conservation efforts. We raise funds for conservation projects at ground level to help save wild tigers in India. We are committed to working with the communities living with wild tigers to build trust so that everyone living with wild tigers has a vested interest in its long term survival in the wild.

Since Tigers4Ever was established it has made a significant difference to the communities which live with the threat of wild tigers in and around Bandhavgarh in Madhya Pradesh, India.

We provide educational resources for children living with wild tigers in villages around Bandhavgarh enabling each child to attend school for at least 1 year and have improved employment outcomes.

We provide vital equipment for anti-poaching patrols protecting wild tigers to enable them to perform more effectively and give better protection to wild tigers.

Tigers4Ever established the first of its kind Buffer Zone poaching patrols in 2015 to address the fact that 90-95% of all wild tiger deaths due to poaching or poisoning occur in the buffer forests. Since establishing the Buffer Zone Poaching Patrols there has been a 98% reduction in wild TIGER DEATHS due to POACHING or POISONING in Bandhavgarh.

Tigers4Ever is the only international charity working to save wild tigers in Bandhavgarh where there is one of the highest densities of wild tigers in the whole of India.

We are entirely dependent on donations and other fundraising activities to fund our charitable work. All UK based Tigers4Ever personnel are unpaid volunteers. Tigers4Ever pledges to use all donations received for wild tiger conservation projects.

Activities

Tigers4Ever has provided educational resources for 3135 children living in 32 villages around Bandhavgarh enabling each child to attend school for at least 1 year. We have also provided over 3500 pieces of vital equipment for anti-poaching patrols protecting wild tigers, including bicycles, waterproof clothing, first aid kits, treated mosquito nets, waterproof high quality head-torches and batteries, and snake rescue, capture and release kits,

In 2015, Tigers4Ever established the first of its kind Buffer Zone poaching patrols to address the fact that 90-95% of all wild tiger deaths due to poaching or poisoning occur in the buffer forests. Since establishing the Buffer Zone Poaching Patrols there has been a 98% reduction in wild TIGER DEATHS due to POACHING or POISONING in Bandhavgarh.

Tigers4Ever ensures that all of its Tiger Conservation Projects are community focused so that those who live with the threat of wild tigers can benefit from its long term survival. Tigers4Ever achieves this through engaging local suppliers to make and supply the equipment for the anti-poaching patrols and the education packs, thereby creating local employment and supporting local businesses. Tigers4Ever employs local workers, from the villages around Bandhavgarh, as Buffer Zone Poaching Patrollers which again creates local employment and ensures that villagers can be approached without fear in the event of incidents. Tigers4Ever is also using local labour and suppliers in the construction of permanent wildlife water-holes which again supports the local economy.
