Project Goal

Save India's wildlife by using the power of film-making to spread the word

Location: India

"Today, except in a handful of reserves, India’s protection system is in tatters.”

India is making headlines for its rapid development and rising profile in world affairs. But conservationist and filmmaker Shekar Dattatri believes that even as his country’s economy and influence grow, India is losing one of its greatest treasures, its wildlife.

He has made the “national animal”, the Royal Bengal Tiger, the symbol of his inspiring campaign to prevent that loss.
