CSE Fellowship Media Briefing on ‘Backs to the wall: Tigers, tiger habitats and conservation’

Protection of tigers is happening in India against all odds. A Sariska-type crisis haunts every protected area in India - where islands of conservation are under attack from poachers, miners and every other exploitative activity.
