Interesting documentary from Al Jazeera documenting conservationists’ uphill battle to save India’s tigers from extinction.
1. Man-Eaters of Kumaon for a review of Jim Corbett’s classic text:
“Human beings are not the natural prey of tiger, and it is only when tigers have been incapacitated through wounds or old age that, in order to live, they are compelled to take a diet of human flesh.” (Corbett, 1944:vii)
2. India’s Illegal Tiger Trade for more detailed discussion of the illegal Tiger trade in India:
“In 1900, more than 100,000 tigers were in the wild. In 2017, there are just over 3,000.” (National Geographic, 2014)
3. Killer Tigers of India for a National Geographic documentary about ‘killer tigers of India’:
“A tiger usually makes one large kill every week. For India’s 1,700-odd tigers, that adds up to more than 85,000 kills in a year.” (BBC, 2014)
4. Counting Tigers: How India does its Tiger Census an NDTV short film about India’s tiger estimation process:
