Noted- I hope that works out like they want it to, instead of just more habitat disruption from human activity.

I would be much happier to just read about these animals being left alone.

Posted. Unless you are there for scientific or conservationist reasons there should be no interference with the tigers.

India leave the tigers and other wildlife alone.
DO NOT expose these animals to tourists.

If it protects the tigers and they are being left alone, then I guess it would be OK. If it's only for human profit and the animals don't benefit, then I'm against it. This has to be what's best for the animals.

The safety of those animals should be the first priority.

The death penalty should be the only punishment available to those caught poaching or dealing in tiger parts.

Tourism should contribute monetarily to the protection of the animals and educating those who travel to see the animals.

Noted. I really wish human beings would just learn to leave well enough alone. If you want to see wild animals, watch National Geographic or rent a film showing them. Educated yourself and understand that human interference is just going to cause more harm than good every time. Unless it is a case of saving an animal that is in danger or injured.

If you go there with an experient guide I finde it OK. They know how to respect the tigers and the money hopefully goes to improve the reserves and to keep the tigers healthy.
