Summary

Climate Change has led to severe drought becoming the norm in Bandhavgarh as annual monsoon rainfall reduces. The impact is felt by all as herbivores enter villages to drink & raid crops; predators follow taking livestock. Villagers can't afford to lose crops & livestock so they try fair or foul means to end the conflict risking tigers' lives. Our project will provide solar-powered borehole pumps to provide year-round water for tigers & their prey thus reducing human-animal conflict & impact

Challenge

In the last 6 years Bandhavgarh has suffered multiple water crises due to erratic rainfall & long drought periods. Existing seasonal wildlife waterholes replenished by monsoon rains dry-out earlier each year. Wild animals go to villages in search of water which leads to further human-animal conflict as crops are raided & livestock taken. Each of our waterhole projects will provide water for 8 or more wild tigers & countless other wild animals whilst reducing human-wildlife conflict.

Solution

Each project will provide solar powered pumps & permanent waterholes for wild tigers & their prey. We access underground streams to provide year round water whilst surplus water returns via soakaway systems. We've provided year-round water critical for the survival of 48 tigers at 9 locations. In 2022 we aim to complete work on 2 more permanent waterholes by the end of February & a 3rd before the monsoon. These will help to reduce human-animal conflict & provide water for 24 more tigers & prey.

Long-Term Impact

The lives of thousands of wild animals including more than 100 wild tigers will be saved by the year-round availability of water. Permanent wildlife waterholes reduce human-animal conflict and contribute to the conservation of the wild tigers' environment & sustainability of their habitat through ecologically focused actions.
