"There is now no poaching here. People living here are earning, and they are maintaining their families very smoothly. They have money. They are educated." The villagers - among India's poorest - receive compensation if a tiger takes a cow or goat

This is an excellent summation for this interesting article, "So did you see the man-eating tigers?" asks a fellow tourist after discovering I've been in the Sundarbans. "No, I didn't," I confess, "but I know they're safe." - Probably not the expected answer.

It's such a shame that most poaching is done because of being poor, this village has the right approach.

Great story!

Thanks hun xx

A spectacular approach, how it would be so wonderful if everywhere had this approach and tigers did not face poaching and other dangers.

Glad to hear some people are figuring out how to co-exist with wildlife. We need fewer people in this world and more animals.
