Driving The Change – To Protect our Natural World

Our Reality. The pressure to preserve the Indian subcontinent’s tigers, wildlands and wildlife is inevitably lost in the priority for people to survive. TOFTigers believes that developing more sustainable enterprises and providing viable long term solutions – that create real economic benefit – are critical to rural communities, especially those living in and around parks, sanctuaries and wildernesses across South Asia.

TOFTigers is a collective campaign and global alliance – with all those involved in saving nature – governments, communities and visitors – to ensure we help sustain wild landscape.

What’s at Stake?

Our Problem. Wildlife populations have already shown a concerning decline, on average by 58 per cent since 1970 and are likely to reach 67 per cent by the end of the decade. WWF Living Planet Report 2016

Our collective action campaign and global alliance – with all those involved in the nature travel sector – is to find better ways to sustain the wild. We need to do faster and do its smarter.

MEASURES OF SUCCESS

Since our launch in 2004 tiger numbers up from 1400 to over 2500

However, there are many ways nature tourism can be improved to achive its full potential to save and protect wildlife and wildlands.
