Protect Tigers in India

India's amazing biodiversity has long faced threats from poachers using simple yet horribly effective hunting devices-traps & snares. A simple instrument consisting of an anchored wire with a sliding noose, a snare is camouflaged with vegetation and set up on animal trails. The noose slips across the animal's body part and tightens, eventually causing gangrene. This project aims to eradicate the menace of snares and traps from the forests so that wild animals can walk the jungle trails safely. project reportread updates from the field

Hundreds of birds are grievously injured every year by glass-coated kite strings (locally called "Manjha") that are used for flying kites. The injuries are mostly related to the wings and range from fractures, ligament and muscle separation and, worst of all, complete amputation of the wing. This project aims to significantly reduce the number of birds injured due to use of manjha during the festive season in India. project reportread updates from the field

Arunachal Pradesh, in north-eastern India is a biodiversity hot spot. Indigenous tribes hunt wildlife for meat, fur, bones, beaks, etc for consumption and traditional attire. Protected species like leopards, black bears and even tigers at times are hunted indiscriminately during mass ritual hunts. The project will work with the community to enforce a ban against hunting and build a community entrepreneurship model for synthetic alternatives to wildlife articles used in traditional tribal attire. project reportread updates from the field

Help Indian Elephants Like Chanchal See Again

Chanchal means playful. True to her name, Chanchal is a spirited elephant living along India's Yamuna River. Tragically, a traumatic eye injury blinded her right side. Chanchal is just 42 with half of her life ahead, but her caretakers cannot afford preventative or restorative eye care. Without treatment, Chanchal will suffer a dangerous life as a partially blind elephant working in New Delhi's crowded roads. By donating, you will ensure Chanchal and elephants like her receive critical eye care.

Every year, Amur falcons (Falco amurensis) fly 22,000 km from Mongolia to South Africa-the longest migration of any raptor. Nagaland in India is their last stop before a 3000 km-long flight across the Indian Ocean. The birds have traditionally been hunted in Nagaland during their roosting period, but last year, reports of mass killings caused consternation across the world. Addressing this issue, WTI has initiated activities involving local villagers to protect the falcons. project reportread updates from the field
Save Elephant Calves from Drowning in Unused Wells

Raised

The villagers of Chota Changru, Bara Changru, and Bantha Reladih in Jharkhand in Eastern India are farmers and use wells to irrigate their fields. Once their use is over, the wells are abandoned. With no fencing around them and the mouth almost hidden by tall weeds, these wells quickly turn into deathtraps for elephant herds crossing the area. In the past two years, five elephant calves have fallen into these wells. Of these, three were rescued in time, but two were not so lucky and drowned. project reportread updates from the field
