Firefighting support to Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve

Dear donor,

Hope you have been keeping well.

With this email, we are sharing with you the updates for our project titled “Vanishing stripes: save the Bengal tiger”. Thank you so much for your generous donation to the project.

In March this year, a wildfire threatened to cause massive damage to Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve in Madhya Pradesh, which is one of the largest biospheres in India. The Tiger Reserve supports one of the largest known population of the Big Cat in India, with around 7-8 tigers per sqkm. Looking at the scale and intensity of the wildfire, the environmentalists and local activists raised an alarm over the possible damage to the tiger population as well as other species of flora and fauna within the protected area.

The forest officials speculated that the fire could have been initiated due to the locals burning ‘sal’ trees on the ground for easy collection of ‘Mahua’ and other non-timber forest produce. The bamboo clumps and the heat wave prevailing within the region at that time, further took the fire to devastating proportions.

Whatever the reason, it got the entire field-level staff to douse the fire. To support the forest staff in their fire-dousing efforts, we provided them with leaf blowers and water canisters. With the right equipment, we were hopeful it would get easier for the forest officials to mitigate this massive fire hazard in this important tiger habitat.

We will be sharing more such updates with you for your generous donations.

Till then, take care.

Regards,

Team WTI
