CSE Fellowship Media Briefing Workshop : Tigers, tiger habitats and their conservation in India

August 23, 2012

June 11-12, 2012

Casuarina Hall, India Habitat Centre, New Delhi
India hosts a majority of the world’s tiger population -- about 1,700 tigers, according to the May 2011 census.

 



But a combination of threats is holding this meagre number to ransom, and poaching and trade in wildlife parts is just one of them. Shrinking habitat, conflicts with humans, growing tourist interference… the tiger has a lot to contend with. Policy intervention, protective legislations and international pressure have not made much of a difference, and if action is not taken effectively, the tiger will dwindle towards extinction.

After announcing its media fellowship on this subject, Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) now invites journalists to a two-day Media Briefing Workshop to participate in discussions on the issue.

This workshop is supported by Jamshedji Tata Trust
