De-snaring Protected Areas in Karnataka

Greetings from Wildlife Trust of India,

Hope you are doing great!

At the outset, we would like to express our gratitude to you for supporting the project ‘Vanishing Stripes – Save the Bengal Tiger’. The project aims to protect India’s tiger population through community awareness programmes on mitigating human-tiger conflict and by conducting anti-snare walks across India’s Protected Areas inhabiting tiger populations. Your generous contribution will significantly help us realize the project’s aim. We are also highly thankful to you for believing in us, our work and for choosing to donate for this cause.

As mandated by the project, anti-snare walks were conducted across Protected Areas dominated by tiger population in Karnataka. Snares are the simplest yet one of the cruellest means of hunting. They indiscriminately trap and kill a wide range of wildlife. The unsuspecting animals walk into these vicious traps and are subjected to terrible injuries and a slow, painful demise. ‘Anti-snare walks’ is a simple yet effective solution to deal with the problem of snares. These walks involve joint patrolling on foot with the forest department authorities to find and remove snares made with different materials such as wires, ropes, cables, metal etc. We believe that every snare removed is an animal saved.

The traps removed were set up by farmers to catch wild boars that raid crops. Between June and October, the project team walked over 500 km and removed all the snares found.

This was made possible through your generous support and we would like to thank you once again for the same. That’s all for today. We’ll soon follow up with more updates from the project. Till then, take care!

With regards,

Team WTI
