BANGALORE: India’s tiger reserves form a major catchment area of over 350 rivers. Our nation’s water security and ultimately social security is an underpinning point to save forests, besides saving it for the wildlife that thrives in them. In 1973, the Government of India launched Project Tiger and as of July 2011 there are 44 tiger reserves spread across the country.

As per SCHEDULE VII (See sections 135) of the Companies Act 2013, conservation of flora and fauna is one of the areas that need corporate support under their social responsibility commitments.  The Government of Karnataka has come up with a unique model ‘Support The Tiger’ to facilitate and guide CSR spending that has the following two implementation models:

a)    Tiger Reserve Foundations: Each tiger reserve has its own Tiger foundation as mandated by the Wildlife Protection Act (WLP Act,1972) with its by-laws and is part of the tiger reserve management.

b)    State Foundations: For all the other protected areas (wildlife sanctuaries, conservation reserves etc) that are not a part of tiger foundation.

The Karnataka Eco Tourism Development Board (KETD), Government of Karnataka is organising a one day event on 6 June 2014 at Bangalore to sensitize the corporate to fund Tiger Conservation and related Conservation Activities. Large companies that have a Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR) funding component for ‘Support The Tiger’ are invited to send their CSR representative for the event.

A Charter of Desirables (CD) for each of Karnataka’s 5 Tiger Reserves has been established which details support opportunities for corporate partners like ‘Adopt an Anti-poaching Camp’. Corporate partners can pick from the wide variety of support activities available in the charter. The support can be either short or long term depending on the resource availability.
