About the event:
The Kids for Tigers (KFT) Express is a van that traverses the villages surrounding the Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve, which has a healthy tiger population, but is plagued by human-animal conflict. The teachers in the van go to villages educating the children and the villagers/ communities on the importance of tiger conservation. This is done by screening wildlife-related films, lending conservation-related books, holding photo-exhibitions, along with talks by famous conservationists and naturalists, in association with the Forest Department.
About the Organizers/Partners:
Kids for Tigers (KFT) is a Sanctuary Asia-Aircel India initiative to spread awareness on tiger conservation among students and teachers across the country.
