7 Tigers Resort

Project

Green Stripes is a save-the-tiger anti-poaching project that jointly works with Kanha Tiger Reserve Forest Department to protect tigers from poachers and help stop the war on wildlife. Out of all the big cats, the tiger is the most threatened by poaching for the illegal wildlife trade. The trade in their body parts commands a high price, where every piece of a tiger — its skin, bones, claws, teeth and eyeballs — has a price tag. Even the soil under the carcass of a tiger has value. This market has already wiped out tiger populations throughout much of Asia, and has left others hemorrhaging. Today, fewer than 3,200 tigers remain in the wild, down from over 100,000 a century ago.

The consumer behavior of millions that are supporting this trade must be changed. The tiger is running out of time. We have to protect those that remain in the wild now.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 26, 2016

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
