Location

Situation

Worldwide the tiger population has fallen to around 3200 tigers and this iconic creature is in very very grave danger of extinction. There are already more tigers in captivity than there are in the wild and urgent action needs to be taken to protect those surviving populations that do exist in the wild. The discovery of a small population of tigers in North East Thailand has made this region key to the survival of the species worldwide.

Solution

The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation is working with expert conservationists in the field, FREELAND, to monitor, track and protect the remaining tigers in Thailand's National Parks. The work of the rangers is supported by an outreach programme which aims to educate local communities about their wildlife heritage and to minimise human-animal conflicts.
