Tiger Awareness are a voluntary group based in Leicester. They believe that if forestry departments and local villagers work together both animal and people will benefit.
The organisation recently visited the village Ranthambhore, in Rajastan, India. They have partners based in Kolkata, where they work together on Sundarbans projects.
Take a look at the photos from their recent visit to Rajastan...
Tiger Awareness was formed in 1998 to make the public more aware of the plight of the tiger. The organisation gives free talks to schools, groups and parties.
What do Tiger Awareness Do?

Tiger Awareness are currently working in India to spread their message about protecting tigers. They also work with the local people, to give them improved water facilities, education and fuels to survive.
They run awareness programmes educating the locals about balance. The forest can supply their daily needs, but taking too much can be harmful to themselves and to the mammals.
Tiger Awareness Funds
Tiger Awareness provided funds to build a hospital on Satjelia Island. This an area home to the largest amount of tigers surviving in the wild, on the edge of the Sundarban tiger reserve.

The organisation has also provided medical items, transport for use in conservation areas and donated items such as sleeping bags and binoculars for the forest guards to help them in their duty to protect the forest and its mammals.
Tiger Awareness Projects
Their newer projects are to supply funds for a water project in Dalma Wildlife Sanctuary, Jharkhand and most recently their trip to the Sundarbans in Rajastan.
