For International Tiger Day on July 29th Big Cat Rescue is working to raise crucial funds to continue our support of the Corbett Foundation, a non-government organization solely committed to the conservation of wildlife, working in some of the most important habitats in India.
Around the outskirts of the Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve (BTR), which holds one of the highest populations of Tigers known in India, it is common for villagers to build open farm wells to obtain water. These are ground level deep holes. They become a death trap for tigers and leopards chasing prey at night who fall into them and die. Currently around 2500 of them exist in BTR.
The simple solution is to build a fence around the wells, but the villagers do not have the $330 required to build these. In the past Big Cat Rescue has been able to donate funds to fence in 56 wells.
--IMPACT 1: Donation of $41 builds 1/8 of a well fence and the donor will receive a tiger pin
--IMPACT 2: Donation of $83 builds 1/4 of a well fence and the donor will receive a tiger pin plus a plushie of a tiger or leopard
--IMPACT 3: Donation of $165 builds 1/2 of a well fence and the donor will receive all of the above plus a signed 3D poster of either a tiger or leopard autographed by our founder, Carole Baskin
--IMPACT 4: Donation of $330 builds an entire well fence and the donor will receive all of the benefits of impact 2 plus two signed 3D posters (tiger and leopard) autographed by our founder, Carole Baskin
We appreciate your generous support. It will be put to work immediately to create lasting change in the wild.
