Pune: An NGO ‘Jividha’ has organized an exhibition called ‘Golden Years of Project Tiger’ starting Wednesday (November 29) at Yashwantrao Chavan Art Gallery, Kothrud, Pune.

Speaking to Pune Pulse, Rajiv Pandit, President, Jividha said, “The Project Tiger movement was started in 1973 in India to protect our tigers. The number of tigers was significantly reduced at that time. The Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand is considered to be the first tiger reserve in India. Melghat Tiger Reserve is considered to be the first tiger reserve in Maharashtra. The number of tigers in India has increased to around 3,600 currently. 75% of the global tiger population is found in India. This is our success story in terms of wildlife conservation. Also, 50 years have been completed for Project Tiger.”

Pandit further added, “Hence, this exhibition ‘Golden Years of Project Tiger’ has been organized by us. Along with the information previously told (mentioned above), many more things will be pondered upon like the positive impact on our economy, environment, employment opportunities for people living near the tiger reserves and challenges lying ahead, etc. Even if the tiger count of India has gone up to 3000+, how shall they be preserved? Many more things will be discussed.”

In the exhibition, 75 informative posters along with 70 to 75 pictures will be displayed & kept. The exhibition will be free of cost for everyone.

The exhibition will begin at 6:30 pm on November 29 and from November 30 to December 3, the exhibition timings will be from 11 am to 8 pm.
