Check this link to register for the same.

It would be a good idea to read my earlier posts about the same to understand what to expect:

If you are really interested in #SaveOurTigers, this is your opportunity to join at ground level and help forest department as a certified eco volunteer to help save tigers and other wildlife. There are only 90 seats so better hurry up for the same.

Please do remember

  • This is a serious training program meant for people who are willing to live in forest and walk for many kilometers every day
  • This is not a tourist activity, so please don’t join if your aim is only to click pictures
  • The good thing is that the training not only covers about the Tigers but also a lot of other plants and animals including insects, amphibians, spiders etc.  So you learn a lot about how to protect and conserve the environment as whole
  • It is a great experience with lots of learning but a lot of hard work also and you will enjoy it if you are really serious about wildlife in general and tigers in particular.
