DSWF continue to fund ground-based conservation partners that focus on tiger conservation in Asia which includes:
Supporting tigers in the Assam Region of India through intelligence gathering, education programmes, park protection and capacity building.
Funding a Rapid Action Project which recognises that wildlife in India is impacted by innumerable threats that require urgent responses for areas such as human wildlife conflict mitigation, habitat protection, community engagement and awareness for conservation and Anti-poaching support to mitigate illegal wildlife trade and species conservation.
Supporting a stable Amur tiger population in the Russian Far East by improving anti-poaching efforts and tiger habitat protection
In the past year DSWF and conservation partners have been thrilled to see local communities coexisting with wildlife which is vital to the fight against extinction, none more so than the Village Defence Force (VDF). Made up of over 180 groups, our ground-based conservation partners in India developed the VDF as a way to bring communities together, whilst instilling a sense of positivity and concern for wildlife. Through patrols and monitoring, each group is able to support the protection of wildlife in vital habitats across Assam.

We are hugely grateful that you have chosen to support us to help turn the tide on extinction.
