About the event:
The Sanctuary TOFTigers Wildlife Tourism Awards 2014 aim to highlight and reward the very best in the nature tourism field; those individuals, businesses, service providers and community enterprises who are leading the way in India’s wilderness destinations. Each in their own way will be pioneering new ways to support and inspire wildlife conservation, engage local communities and help restoration of wildlife habitat through their vision, drive and actions.
There are eight categories of awards, from wildlife guide, lodge naturalist, eco-lodge and wildlife destination to community related tourism initiatives, most tourism friendly parks, wildlife promotion company and wildlife tour operator. The winners will be announced at a prestigious gala awards dinner in Delhi on September 19, 2014.
