Tiger in

HOUSTON: According to a recent report released by the wildlife trade monitoring network, India lost close to 41 tigers during between January 1 and August 9 of this year, to various causes including poaching.

The Prakratik Society, working around India’s Ranthambhore National Park, a globally renowned tiger Reserve in the Indian State of Rajasthan, shows that there are other ways to both save Indian tigers and other wildlife and make local inhabitants benefit from protecting the park, rather than promoting the slaughter of precious animals in private hunting sanctuaries for the wealthy or by poaching for the merciless wildlife trade.

The Prakratik Society founded by Dr. Goverdhan Singh Rathore, son of the famous field director of Ranthambhore, Fateh Singh Rathore, known as the “Tiger Man of India,” has been working for over two decades to find solutions for the people of Ranthambore and their well-being, which will in turn ensure the safety and security of the tigers of the wildlife reserve.

Prakratik USA is a Texas-based initiative, formed to support the work of the Prakratik Society. Its first initiative, ‘Friends of Ranthambore,’ is to introduce Dr. Rathore to the people of Houston on Saturday, August 22 at 7pm at the Techniplex Conference Center, 4810 Techniplex Drive, Stafford, TX 77477.

Dr. Rathore, in a rare visit to the United States, will share some of his experiences and discuss the Prakratik Society’s innovative approach to resolving the conflicting needs of wildlife and people and will discuss his pioneering efforts for the people and tigers of Ranthambore.
