The Sighting of a Lifetime

Published 06/19/12

A friend of Born Free recently saw something that's truly remarkable.

The very rare sight of a tigress and her five (yes, five!) cubs occurred in Pench Tiger Reserve in Maharashtra State, around which our Satpuda Landscape Tiger Programme colleagues deliver their community conservation programs. Just two weeks before this exciting encounter, Born Free representatives were hosting a seminar in the very same reserve, assessing our partners’ progress and making plans for the next phase of field activities to protect tigers and their habitat.

When good news about tigers is in such disconcertingly short supply, sightings like this one are a much needed shot-in-the-arm for wildlife lovers everywhere, not only illustrating the potential for populations to recover if we can protect them adequately, but also reminding us of the tiger’s magisterial beauty which does — and must — continue to spur us on.
