If you've reached this page through interest in our project
work I hope you can understand why this Home Page has
been published in response to the crisis here in Nepal. We
have pulled down the original site and will run this site in
simplified form during the crisis. You can go direct to my
blog Here and my Facebook page Here where I will update
as much as possible.
The earthquake which hit Nepal had an epicentre at a point
midway between main cities Kathmandu and Pokhara has
been particularly severe in the Gorkha region where we are
concentrating our efforts in providing aid to remote villages.
We are concentrating our efforts on the Hamsapur area
near the epicentre of the earthquake. Medical and food
supplies were distributed. A Needs Assessment regarding
Epidemic Prevention was carried out and essentially this our
main emphasis because monsoon conditions will be putting
huge strains on people living in tented camps. The risk of
disease is high and we are doing our best to prevent this.
My thanks to the Sanjiwani Health Team for their help in the
initial deployment. Ongoing support from the Ghandruk
VDC and ACAP as well as international aid is making this
possible. We are also working in collaboration with various
others organizations including the Nepal Army. Funds are
still required and I can assure you they go directly to ground
level, that is the WildTiger way, always has been, always will
be. We thank you sincerely for your support during this
crisis. I will report as often as possible through my blogs but
am often out of range.
Assisting me in the field is Som G.C. who is a highly
experienced avian/wildlife expert whose knowledge of
Nepal's back country is invaluable at this time. Som will be
running Needs Assessment in the affected areas we are
operating in as well as continuing his work monitoring the
illegal trade in birds and other wildlife.
Som is also an internationally recognized guide who fits
clients into his busy schedule. Som can be contacted at:

are such an important part of our funding. Cecile can be
reached at her base in Grenoble, France at
We'll have more on the Exhibitions on this site but contact
Cecile if you'd like to be involved.
Cecile and Tariq Jabrane (Morocco) are also busy with the
construction of our new online format which will be crucial to
our work on the ground. Cecile also works at ground level
as much as behind her laptop and is currently busy
organizing emergency shelters as part of R2A.

Park where he is the leader of the Community Based

other conservation work. Hemant is currently also busy

our work with big cats. Hemant's ability in mobilizing and
motivating teams is invaluable for WildTiger.
Bidhya Sharma is a young wildlife biologist in the making

organized and rational approach.

but she has already shown a lot of versatility in her practical
