Saving threatened habitats worldwide

Back from India, new fundraising campaign

7 April, 2009 - 14:07 -- John Burton

Just back from India where I went to Corbett National Park with our partners Wildlife Trust of India. We were investigating potential new wildlife corridors around Corbett National Park. This is one of the few areas where tigers are actually increasing, and so any corridor for elephants will also help the tigers. In the next few days we will start fundraising for this wildlife corridor, so check back later for more information.

Unfortunately I have too much catching up to do to go into details about the visit, so you will have to read Saturday's The Times to find out more. I was accompanied by writer and WLT Council member Simon Barnes and Times photographer David Bebber, and Simon's write up will be published this Saturday. (When available online we'll post a link.) It's an exciting project, and whilst in India we saw some wonderful wildlife, including a brief - but memorable - encounter with a tiger.
