Project Tiger

In this article we will discuss Project Tiger

A fast decline of the tiger population lead to the set up of a special task force in 1970
by the Indian Board for Wildlife to prepare an action plan to conserve the tiger population in India. As a result ‘Project Tiger’ was launched on 1 April 1973 with the following objectives:
• To maintain a viable population of tigers for scientific, cultural and ecological
values.
• To preserve areas rich in biodiversity as a national heritage for the education and
enjoyment.
In 1973-74 nine Tiger Reserves were established to promote elimination of all forms of human exploitation and disturbance from the core zones.
