Summary

Since the COVID19 crisis began our Anti-Poaching Patrollers have helped to neutralise the increased threat to wild tigers by working extra shifts. As a result, 12 uniforms have worn out due to additional use. The old uniforms have lasted 4 years, and the individual PPE is still in working order, so it's just 12 uniforms which need to replacing. Without uniforms our patrollers lack the authority they need when dealing with miscreants in the forest so getting new uniforms quickly is paramount.

Challenge

Without uniforms, our patrollers lack the required authority when challenging miscreants and potential poachers because they just look like any other forest dweller. In order that our patrols can challenge the actions of these miscreants, they need to convey the appearance of the Anti-Poaching Patrollers which they are. New uniforms will ensure that our patrollers are taken seriously when they challenge people in the tiger forests about their actions.

Solution

If we can raise $750 we can replace the 12 uniforms which are now damaged beyond repair and ensure that all our patrollers are clearly distinguishable from other forest dwellers when they are on duty.

Long-Term Impact

In India, Bandhavgarh has one of the highest densities of wild tigers, but India's forests & wildlife are disappearing at an alarming rate. Our patrols have reduced tiger deaths from poaching by 97% in 5 years. Wild tiger populations in India are recovering slowly due to intense conservation efforts so it's fundamental to maintain this positive impact by continuing patrolling which is key to the longterm survival of wild tigers; whilst educating & employing local people helps to relieve poverty.
