Tiger Time Out

Tiger Time Out.

Dear Tiger Advocates,

The good news is: in the last 7 months more than 1 million people have read the news we have distributed about tigers. We are proud that our activities to raise awareness on all kinds of tiger issues are supported by so many of you!

The sad news is: we will temporarily stop with the distributing of tiger news.

We are currently working on a groundbreaking tiger conservation project and that consumes all of our time and our attention.

As soon as we can we will resume our activities to raise awareness on tiger issues!

Thank you all for your support.

All the best,

Chris Slappendel
(founder IAT Tiger Platform)

NYCA Killing Tiger Guidelines

The Indian tiger authority (the NTCA) has issued new guidelines for Chief Wildlife Wardens on how to deal with problem tigers.

However, with the new guidelines the NTCA seems to shoot itself in the foot.

Many people, conservationists, even lawyers, object on the way the NTCA has written down the new guidelines. Some say that the NTCA now has more opportunities to have tigers killed. Others say that the Indian law doesn’t allow the new guidelines of the NTCA.

Either way, it seems that the NTCA now has work to do to recover the damage done with the new guidelines.
