Tiger is a large-hearted gentleman with boundless courage and when he will be exterminated – as exterminated he will be unless public opinion rallied to his support –  India will be the poorer by having lost finest of her fauna.” – Jim Corbett

It is believed that the tiger population in India in the 1900s was approximately 1,00,000. Today it is an alarming 3891! Long before Project Tiger, a gentleman named Jim Corbett came to the rescue of this magnificent animal.

In this capsule, the learner sees the tiger through the eyes of Corbett, the British hunter-tracker turned conservationist & explores tiger dynamics in the national parks and forests.
