This video, taken in November 2011, features Panthera’s Media Director and National Geographic photographer, Steve Winter, giving a NatGeo Live! lecture entitled On the Trail of the Tiger. In his presentation, Steve describes his travels through India, Sumatra, and Thailand to photograph the dwindling populations of tigers in these countries. Winter also discusses how Panthera is working across Asia to protect the world’s remaining 3,200 tigers through the Tigers Forever program, which aims to increase tiger numbers by 50% in key sites throughout Asia over a ten year period.
In February, Winter received the prestigious Pictures of the Year International Global Vision Award for the second year in a row for a collection of 40 photos taken during these trips. Click here to see the photos.
