In many places the word “tiger” refers to any wild cat. Our work takes place where apex and subordinate predators fufil their vital ecological roles. Innovative projects such as LeopardEye and Ecosystem Reboot are part of WildTiger operations within the three elements of rescue/rehabilitation, anti-poaching/trafficking and coexistence strategies.

A leopard killed in a snare 28 April (Kailali, west Nepal), these snares are usually set for wild meat (deer, boar etc) but trap leopards and other predators, the body parts then entering the illegal wildlife trade market. WildTiger is committed to reducing snare trap killing. This incident is an example of an ongoing problem throughout India, Nepal and Pakistan in the South Asian region where the Indian leopard (panthera pardus fusca) is particularly marginalized with poaching and retaliation killing at seriously high levels. WildTiger is putting strong focus on the protection of the leopard in South Asia as the species suffers from a lack of conservation emphasis.
Due to safety and security reasons (for both people and wildlife) we limit the amount of public online information within the elements of wildlife crime and rescue/rehabilitation. Our coexistence strategies are a work in progress and are found mainly at our sister site wildleopard.net
