Description:

There may be no more magnificent animal than the tiger. Yet, around the world, their populations are dwindling, and the Indian Bengal tiger is no exception. Some estimates say there are fewer than 2,000 Bengal tigers and the entire world tiger population may be less than 3,000. The Life and Fate of the Indian Tiger offers a unique perspective on these exquisite cats. Author Tobias J. Lanz, who has been studying Indian tigers since 1998, incorporates historical and cultural topics, as well as conservation and social theories into his narrative. He paints a detailed portrait of the tiger’s life in the wild, enriching that picture with descriptions of the plant, animal, and human life found in India’s diverse tiger habitats. Personal observations on local cultures, scenery, and wildlife are balanced by discussions with the Indian people, ranging from government officials to villagers.

The Indian tiger continues to survive against great odds. Written in part to engage the reader in conservation efforts, The Life and Fate of the Indian Tiger outlines the main programs and policies enacted to save the tiger in India. Lanz dedicates a final chapter to global efforts at tiger conservation, explaining what can and must be done to safeguard one of the world’s rarest and most beautiful creatures from extinction.

    Quote by English poet John Dunne. No man is an island, entire of it self; every man is a piece of the Continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by sea …

    Your article on tigers reminded me of the short short stories I had written about The Bengal tiger and another on the black panther. They are quite inventive stories. Some wildlife magazine may want to read them. They aren’t intellectual, but informative, nevertheless. Thanks for the bringing this subject to my mind.

    India has it important role to increase the number of tigers in there proper habitats.
    The Tiger is the spirit of the Indian Jungle, the symbol of India is wilderness & its National

    Heritage. Even his distant roar, or an alarm call of some animal announcing his presence ,

    charges the whole environment of the jungle with excitement.
