the tiger man of India
FATEH SINGH RATHORE
"We cannot save the tigers and ignore the local people.. For people to truly understand the true worth of their natural inheritance, an education is a must. Only then can they begin to understand the intricate and symbiotic web of nature."
Fateh Singh Rathore, known as the 'Tiger Man of India' through his work as Field Director of Ranthambhore, set the stage for the struggle to save tigers in this jungle and others throughout India. He moved villages out of the Park, became a wildlife expert and a powerful voice for the survival of tigers in their jungle home. Fateh Singh believed that unless local people had a stake in the tiger's future, neither the Park nor its tigers could survive. It is his vision which is being carried out in Ranthambore by his family, students, friends, and admirers.
