In many countries, women are leading conservation efforts and playing a vital role in protecting tigers and their habitats. For example, in India, women are working as forest guards and anti-poaching patrols, monitoring tiger populations and protecting them from poachers. They also act as ambassadors for conservation, educating local communities about the importance of tigers and the need to protect them.
In Indonesia, women are leading the efforts to save the Sumatran tiger, one of the world’s most critically endangered tiger subspecies. The Sumatran Tiger Conservation Programme, led by Dr. Noviar Andayani (left), a female conservationist, has been working to protect the remaining tigers in the wild, and also to prevent further habitat loss. The efforts of Andayani and her team have led to the protection of key tiger habitats and the establishment of a breeding program for the critically endangered Sumatran tigers.
In addition to their work in the field, many women are also working to raise awareness about tiger conservation and the importance of protecting these animals. They are using social media, speaking engagements, and other forms of outreach to educate people about the threats facing tigers and the need to protect them.
