Tiger Conservation in India


  • Varun Khandelwal


The primary focus of the paper is to analyze the Indian Tiger Conservation program – Project Tiger. The circumstances that lead to and the conditions under which the program was launched are discussed. National Parks in India lead to a situation where the natives of the forest are deprived of their homes and livelihoods as an externality of conservation. These ousted populations (‘green oustees’) often turn against the National Parks for their sustenance.
