Tigers4Ever is a small UK based Registered Charity (Registered Charity Number: 1160528) originally established as a small, not-for-profit organisation in late 2010 by Corinne and David Taylor-Smith. Tigers4Ever raises awareness of the wild tigers’ plight; and tries to inspire you to support the conservation efforts of those who are trying to save them. Tigers4Ever seeks to influence policy and the decision makers, where possible; and to raise money to fund small conservation projects at ground level to help save wild tigers in India. Tigers4Ever is committed to working with the communities living with wild tigers to ensure that everyone can benefit from the tiger’s survival in the wild.

Since Tigers4Ever was established it has made a significant difference to the communities which live with the threat of wild tigers in and around Bandhavgarh National Park in Madhya Pradesh, India. Tigers4Ever has provided educational resources for 1580 children living in 22 villages around Bandhavgarh enabled each child to attend school for at least 1 year. Tigers4Ever has also provided over 1600 pieces of vital equipment for anti-poaching patrols protecting wild tigers, including bicycles, waterproof clothing, first aid kits, treated mosquito nets, waterproof high quality head-torches and batteries, and snake rescue, capture and release kits,

In 2015, Tigers4Ever established the first of its kind Buffer Zone poaching patrols to address the fact that 90-95% of all wild tiger deaths due to poaching or poisoning occur in the buffer forests. Since establishing the Buffer Zone Poaching Patrols there have been NO TIGER DEATHS due to POACHING or POISONING in Bandhavgarh for over a year (compared to 14 tiger deaths in the previous 20 months).

Tigers4Ever ensures that all of its Tiger Conservation Projects are community focused so that those who live with the threat of wild tigers can benefit from its long term survival. Tigers4Ever achieves this through engaging local suppliers to make and supply the equipment for the anti-poaching patrols and the education packs, thereby creating local employment and supporting local businesses. Tigers4Ever employs local workers, from the villages around Bandhavgarh, as Buffer Zone Poaching Patrollers which again creates local employment and ensures that villagers can be approached without fear in the event of incidents. Tigers4Ever is also using local labour and suppliers in the construction of permanent wildlife water-holes which again supports the local economy.

Tigers4Ever is entirely dependent on donations and other fundraising activities to fund its charitable work. All UK based Tigers4Ever personnel are unpaid volunteers. Tigers4Ever pledges to use all donations received for wild tiger conservation projects.

The Tigers4Ever UK based team includes Co-Founders Corinne and David Taylor-Smith alongside inaugural Trustee Naomi Ditchfield; and more recently appointed Trustees: Jeremy Valentine, Shaer Halewood and Mick Warner. The Tigers4Ever team in India is headed up by Tigers4Ever appointed representatives: Mr.Deepak Talan  and Mrs Vidya Singh.

Tigers4Ever received recognition as a Charity from HMRC in January 2012 and from the Charities Commission England & Wales in February 2015.
