Synergy

 

Why all 3 - Tigers, Environment, and People?

When we interviewed Nature Reserve authorities asking what we could do for the tiger, they said help the tiger?s environment and help the people who live there.  If the environment is thriving, the tiger will thrive.  If the people are better off, they will take care of the environment, avoid poaching animals and plants from the forest, and resist helping tiger poachers. 

To help tigers, environment, or people,

you must help them all.

People-Tiger - We'll be retailing the goods made through our micro-credit program.  A portion of retailing profits will go to tiger anti-poaching

Conservation & Wildlife Encounters - Successful anti-poaching programs mean there will be more tigers & more Tiger Center activities

Tiger-Environment-People - When people come to see tigers and come for environment education, they are likely to buy things from our micro-credit entrepreneurs

People-Tiger-Environment - Income earned through employment and by selling things to ecotourists and education participants, as well as a free school and a local clinic/hospital means the local community will be better off.  Since people benefit from having tigers around, they will take care of the environment and tigers

Education-Tiger - The education center will also provide photography programs for tiger tourists

Environment-Tiger - Since we will be a showcase of sustainable technologies (solar, biodigesters, water harvesting, etc.) and provide hands-on experience and insights, our environment education programs will be more effective, and tiger tourists will gain exposure to them, as well

Environment-Tiger - By using and promoting sustainable technologies, and through our environment education, we will have a positive impact on the environment.  This means more tigers & more environmental activists

 

We're sure you can think of more synergies.

 

Why not come & help make them work?
