My friend Brian Weirum has been working for almost two decades to protect the tigers of India and Nepal through his work with The Fund for the Tiger, where I’m on the board of directors. Part of his good work has been leading an annual fund-raising trip to India and Nepal through Mountain Travel Sobek. This trip has raised more than $175,000 that Brian has put directly into the field over the last 14 years.
Now the government of India is planning to ban tourism to the parks where the tigers still roam. See what Brian has to say about it and what the issues are at my blog post on Cleared for Takeoff: The Triporati Blog.
