Responsible tourism: Tiger conservation project in India

Environment

Tiger are becoming increasingly more and more endangered and could face extinction by the year 2022. This tour not only encompasses admiring these magnificent big cats in their natural environment, but it promotes and implements various Tiger conservation activities. Education plays a huge part in this tour, with local guides and experts teaching the visitors about the issues facing the Tigers and how they can be best helped. There is also a very hands-on element to the trip as travelers will be able to help park rangers with their Tiger conservation activities, such as setting up camera traps and impression pads in an attempt to track the animals movements. These conservation activities are crucial in learning more about the Tiger population so it can, hopefully, be saved before it is too late.
Waste is kept to a minimum on this trip as travelers enjoy the activities in a similar way to how the locals do. Meals in the bush and walking on some of the safari's are both ways of keeping waste to a minimum, as they are both rough and ready activities which keep the required equipment, and therefore waste, to a minimum.

Community

On this trip, travelers get the chance to visit both the local Pardhi tribe and teach at a local school. The visit to the tribe is in partnership with a local NGO who are attempting to wean the tribes people off of the hunting of endangered animals which is currently commonplace. At the local school, travelers have to assist local teachers for the day by teaching local children English, and as this is coming from a native speaker (unless the traveler comes from a different country,) this will be of a huge benefit to the children.
Through the visits to the local school and tribal villages, cultural exchange takes place. Travelers get to learn about the Indian way of life and how they are trying to protect their natural ecosystems whilst making enough money to live, and the locals get the chance to learn English and other stories from the travelers who are visiting them. Both parties have the chace to take home new and exciting experiences that would otherwise not have been able to happen.
