Tiger Trust, an organization that has been working in India for more than 5 decades on the issue, was able to contribute significantly to the conference. The Honorary Secretary, Anjana Gosain, was invited as the keynote speaker and in her talk, she addressed the many challenges that wild tigers face– habitat destruction, poaching and more increasingly human-animal conflict which results in revenge killing. As with many issues facing endangered wildlife and habitat, the issues are complex and multifaceted, but essentially, revenge killings are when a tiger has been blamed for killing a cow and then the tiger is killed by humans out of revenge. Mrs. Gosain showed a film “The Truth About Tigers” by Shekar Dattatri which is a 40 minute in-depth film which motivates it’s viewers to become a voice for the animals that have no voice of their own. She also introduced the internationally famous wild Tigress of Ranthambhore National Park, Machli in order to make the stark comparison of wild tigers to captive tigers. Throughout the conference, Mrs. Gosain continued to encourage the students to make the most of their youthful energy as she has been waging this battle for so many years and it’s so encouraging to see them so engaged on the subject.
