‘Lost Land of the Tiger’ is a BBC documentary series following Panthera’s CEO and tiger expert, Dr. Alan Rabinowitz, and a team of scientists as they search for tigers in the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan. This 45 minute video was condensed and posted on National Geographic’s website in 2011. The program was originally aired by BBC in 2010 and in 2011 and 2012 by National Geographic WILD.
Almost 5 million viewers in the UK tuned in to watch the exciting expedition that resulted in video footage of tigers potentially breeding at the highest elevation ever recorded in Bhutan – approximately 13,500 feet. We have known for quite some time, due to the long-standing efforts of Bhutanese, Indonesian and other international tiger conservationists, that tigers have been present at this elevation, as referenced in this scientific publication. This new footage, however, indicates that tigers might be doing more than just passing through.
