Bagh Mitra Tiger Conservation Awareness

Increasing anthropogenic pressure on Ranthambhore and Ramgarh Tiger Reserves and limited awareness facilities called for us to sensitise the younger generation of the communities in the area.

Anthropogenic pressure is the primary long-term threat to tigers and their habitat. Villagers living near tigers tend to view them negatively.

Connecting the aforesaid children to their location and context meaningfully and preparing them to act and participate in future wildlife conservation interventions is of the utmost importance for the long-term well-being of both the Ranthambhore and Ramgarh Tiger Reserves.

Tiger Watch aims to reduce human-tiger conflict by working with school-going students of Sawai Madhopur, Bundi, and Karauli districts in the heart of tiger habitat in Ranthambhore and Ramgarh Vishdhari Tiger Reserves through the Bagh Mitra Tiger Conservation Awareness Program. The program in the Sawai Madhopur district is part of the Dieter & Liz Gutmann Tiger Conservation Program. The program in the schools of Bundi and Karauli districts is supported by Petronet LNG Ltd.

The program is designed to dispatch mobile teams of teachers to cover environmental topics in village schools, covering different components essential for raising awareness among the youth both inside and outside the classroom. The program has been running for two years in the Sawai Madhopur district and employs a team of 4 teachers impacting 60 schools. The program has completed one year in the Bundi and Karauli districts as a separate chapter and employs a total of 5 teachers and directly impacts 75 schools in these two districts cumulatively.
