An Insider’s Take on the Reality of India’s Wildlife Tourism Ban

Panthera

By Sanjay Gubbi, Tiger Program Coordinator for Panthera

Some wildlife conservationists welcomed it as the move to save tigers. A few called it ridiculous. The media pronounced it as a ban on tourism in India’s 41 tiger reserves. Regardless of the label, the recent interim ban on tiger tourism issued by India’s Supreme Court has garnered widespread international attention and controversy, with many inaccurate interpretations circulating of the Supreme Court’s order. In reality, the court is not moving to restrict the public from viewing tigers in the wild, but is instead temporarily suspending such tourism to achieve a much-needed conservation goal for India’s tigers.

Help Turn the Tide for Tigers

Panthera

Dear Friend of Panthera,

I have just returned from Bangkok, Thailand where I joined many of the world's leading tiger experts for our 6th annual Tigers Forever meeting to assess our progress in stemming the decline of one of the most enigmatic creatures on the planet - the wild tiger.

Today, fewer than 3,200 individuals remain in the wild. Along with habitat loss and overhunting of wild prey by humans, rampant poaching for tiger skins and other body parts sold through illegal wildlife markets across Asia, is driving the species towards extinction.
