Seeing The 'Silver' Lining...

"We celebrated The Corbett Foundation’s 25th anniversary on 22 April 2019. It was  established as a natural progression of our work in India, after my wife, Rina and I set  up our first  wildlife resort in 1991 in Corbett National Park.


The  journey that started in 1994 in Corbett landscape, has now reached several other important wildlife landscapes and corridors throughout the length and breadth of India. 

Our green warriors have shown remarkable courage and determination to further TCF's mission and to ensure a harmonious coexistence of humans and wildlife.

Much more needs to be done to protect India's natural heritage from extinction.The task ahead looks bleak, but we see the 'silver lining behind the dark clouds' as we embark on this journey with renewed vigour, zeal and your continued support.

On behalf of TCF trustees, I express my deepest gratitude to all the corporate and institutional donors and well-wishers for their unstinted support to our projects and activities in the past 25 years!"

Striving for community health 

Our medical team of Kanha division arranged a special health check-up camp in village Shila of Khapa range of Kanha tiger reserve buffer zone under rural medical outreach program. Total 39 patients were treated in this camp and nine pathological tests were done.

Such special camps are arranged periodically so as to reach to villages that do not come under regular medical routes.

Earning community support in conservation

Recently we trained 12 women from Sarasdol, Behrakhar and Nikkum villages located around Kanha tiger reserve to assemble wildlife miniatures into beautiful charms and to stitch drawstring bags.

The training was done in association with a company named PashooPakshee. 

These trained women will now make the products on a larger scale and products will successfully reach the markets through PashooPakshee.

Our effort is to provide these women alternate livelihood options, help them to earn better and in turn reduce their dependency on forests.

Launch of Project

SRIJAN at Manipur 

A re-creation of forest, project SRIJAN (Systematic Rejuvenation of Indigenous Jungles and Nature), starts at our Manipur division as the rains are set to arrive in June.

Our team, with active support of local community, is geared up for the revival and collected 500 saplings in a traditional way.

The first phase of plantation has started in Dailong and Azuram village with three hills that are deforested due to Jhum (slash and burn) cultivation in Dailong village of Manipur.

The plantation will continue and 500 more saplings of five or more of local species will be planted till  June.
