To commemorate Global Tiger Day on 29th July, BES in collaboration with Global Tiger Center under the Ministry of Agriculture and Forests distributed electric stoves to ex-tiger poachers in Norbugang.

This is part of our Conservation Through Compassion joint initiative, which aims to improve the living standards of the communities at the forefront of the human-wildlife conflict. We believe that giving the ex-poachers an alternative source of livelihood and improving their living standards will incentivize them to stop poaching and live in harmony with wildlife.

The initiative is supported by the GEF- Small Grants Programme, UNDP and RGOB under the big cats conservation programme.
