VIDEO: Battle to Save the Tiger

Found uploaded by someone else on Google Video - the full 49 min documentary. Watch it while it remains online. You can also download it and watch it with Google Video Player.

The Indian Tiger is in deep trouble. Thirty years ago India set aside over 30 tiger reserves controlled by Project Tiger. Initially it was hailed as a great success, but in the last few years hundreds of tigers have been poached from under officials' noses according to WPSI (Wildlife Protection Society of India) run by Belinda Wright. This film, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, looks at the controversy surrounding the plight of the tiger. Can they come back from the brink of extinction again?

Thank you very much. I saw this on Carnivore Conservation as well, but I appreciate the reminder. I will make time to see it tonight if I can manage it. I do not usually have opportunities to see such programming.

Thanks a lot. I keep writing about wild life matters as also about what we see when we go to the National Parks. I do not know how to post photographs and movies on the blog yet. But having seen what you posted, I think that is a lot better and I should too learn how to do it.
