For International Tiger Day 2020, Big Cat Rescue is working to raise crucial funds for the Corbett Foundation, to combat human-wildlife conflict and habitat degradation in India. Big Cat Rescue will match donations and merchandise sales up to $2500, dollar for dollar, in an effort to reach our goal of $5,000!

The Corbett Foundation is a non-government organization solely committed to the conservation of wildlife, working in some of the most important habitats in India. The funds will go to support their Cattle Shed fencing initiative, which is in place to try and reduce tiger habitat loss and degradation, as well as human-wildlife conflict. There are a large number of villages located in and around tiger habitats, and local people are depending on the forest for grazing of livestock, wood for fuel, wood for cattle fencing and farming. This initiative aims to reduce the dependency of local people on forest resources by providing alternative materials for cattle housing. The cattle fencing also provides a level of security from livestock predation, reducing the occurrence of retaliatory killings of tigers, by farmers. The cost for materials & labor for a cattle shed is approximately $250, so our goal is to raise enough funds to donate 20 to the initiative.
