Tiger Watch – Curbing the Crisis

Tiger WatchTiger Watch is a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) started by Mr. Fateh Singh Rathore (Field Director, Ranthambhore National Park, Retd.) and a few other prominent conservationists. The main objective of the organization  is the conservation and protection of wildlife at Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve in Rajasthan.

In 2006, Tiger Watch made a 28 minute documentary called Curbing the Crisis which informed about the loss of tigers at Ranthambhore National Park, one of India’s most prominent tiger reserves.

The documentary shows footage from the national park, information on the poaching gangs working in the area and reasons for the crisis to recur have also been highlighted in the film.

There is also rare and shocking footage of poachers confessing to their crimes. The most shocking being the confession of a poacher Devi Singh who shared the modus operandi for poaching tigers in the area. The third part of the documentary informs  about the nexus between poachers and wildlife traders, how these traders purchased the tiger skins and other parts  and  smuggled them into Tibet, Myanmar and China to be sold in open markets.

This documentary is a must watch for those concerned with wildlife conservation.

  1. this issue is a like a plague , some of those caught in this trade should be punished for life , chaps like sansar chand have virtually wiped out the tiger population in sariska and panna the steps taken by Shri fatheh singhrathore and Dr dharmendra along with their team are commendable and encouraged .
    It was aprivelage to meet both of them in ranthambore year before last at the tiger watch office .

  3. I would always love to see that the Wildlife is in Secure situation.. Without the efforts of a very few people like Mr.Fateh Singh Rathore and others.. the Ranathambore would have been a HISTORY for the TIGERS. People Should support such NGOs and preserve our Widlife for our Future
