Saving Wild Tigers is a network of volunteers. We volunteer our time and expertise (and often money) because we care about the vanishing tiger. Our officers are:
Nina Rao, Co-Chair, is vice president of Pilgrim Heart, Inc, and business manager for Krishna Das ( http://www.krishnadas.com) and also travels and sings devotional chanting with him and on her own. ( http://www.ninaraochant.com). For 10 years she had her own company, Rare Earth Explorations, and organized wildlife photographic safaris in Africa and India. She continues to visit India frequently as her love for wildlife only deepens further.
Sunil Somalwar, Co-Chair, is a Professor of Physics at Rutgers University and a volunteer activist with the Sierra Club of New Jersey.
Our tiger conservation activities are selected on basis of advice from the world's tiger experts such as Dr. Ullas Karanth of the Wildlife Conservation Society and Valmik Thapar, a renowned Indian conservationist, author, and photographer.
We believe in a low cost approach to environmental education and conservation. We have no staff, we do not do bulk mailings or distribute trinkets or glossy brochures. Your donations go straight to the tiger. Combined with the purchasing power of the dollar (or a pound...) in the tiger habitat, Saving Wild Tigers gives a good bang for every donated buck. Our publicity is by word-of-mouth, so we count on you to act as a goodwill ambassador for the tiger and spread the word about our efforts.
