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

Over the last 5 years Bandhavgarh has suffered from an acute water crisis due to erratic rainfall & long dry spells. Existing wildlife waterholes previously replenished by rainwater have become dry or almost dry. Wildlife now needs to look elsewhere for water which leads to increased human-animal conflict due to crop raiding and livestock predation. The project will provide water for up to 8 tigers and countless other wildlife whilst reducing human-animal conflict.

Solution

The project will provide a solar powered pump & a large waterhole for tigers/other wildlife, using underground streams to provide permanent water for wildlife. Surplus water returns via soakaway systems. We installed 3 systems & built a large waterhole with a solar pump filling 8 waterholes in 2015-20 critical for the survival of 47 tigers & reducing human-animal conflict. Donations will help to further reduce human-animal conflict & save more tigers & prey via the provision of year-round water.

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. It will lead to reduced human-animal conflict and will contribute to the conservation of the tigers' environment & sustainability through ecologically focused actions.
