June 2021: Community Health For Tiger Conservation

Thank you for choosing to support our work to protect India’s tigers and promote co-existence.

During recent months, the Satpuda Landscape Tiger Programme has continued to invest in its Indian NGO partners, with a focus on improving community health and education to reduce human-wildlife conflict.

Working with our partner organisation, Indian NGO Nature Conservation Society Amravati (NCSA), the Born Free-supported Mobile Health Unit (MHU) has conducted just under 500 mobile health camps over the past two years. A total of 20,910 patients have been treated in villages in and around five Tiger Reserves spanning two Indian states.

Many of the villagers treated by the MHU have since enrolled in local tiger conservation activities, such as water conservation works, fighting forest fires and joining capacity building programmes to adopt alternate livelihoods like mushroom cultivation, paper bag making, and training as forest guides. Just under 2,000 forest staff were also treated by the MHU, and went on to be observed engaging in local tiger conservation efforts.

NCSA have been recording tiger retaliatory killings in the same villages, and has observed a gradual reduction from seven recorded in 2016, to just one killing in early 2021 – great news for India’s tigers!

Thank you for your continued support for this vital conservation programme.
