Sponsored walk for tigers

The Walk4Wildlife around Richmond Park was sadly cancelled by the organisers due to an issue beyond of their control and so Esther from 21st Century Tiger is now doing her sponsored walk for tigers in the New Forest on 29th October. What better time to walk through the New Forest but late October, when the autumn colours light up the canopy, the forest walk is truly stunning.  There are two walks to choose from. A daytime, family walk and a night-time walk suitable for those aged 14+.  The walk dates have been set to coincide with school...

Lingkar Institute – Update

21st Century Tiger supports specialist Tiger Protection & Conservation Units (TPCU) in and around the National Park under a partnership between Fauna & Flora International and Kerinci Seblat National Park (KSNP).  However, because of the size of the national park, some areas lack routine patrols and capacity to adequately protect the area.  Consequently,  tigers in some areas of the National Park are very vulnerable to poaching. This serious problem will be addressed by the Lingkar Institute in a strategically important district in the south-west of the national park in...
