• Ranthambore: Tiger's Own Den

EDVENTURE EXPLAINED

WHY DID WE CHOOSE RANTHAMBORE?

A former hunting ground of the Maharajas of Jaipur, the Ranthambore National Park is today a major wildlife tourist attraction. Its dense tiger population and easy sighting opportunities attract many wildlife photographers and conservationists from all parts of the world. This is one of the rare parks where tiger population is extensively documented and students can be made aware of the life history of each tiger and understand firsthand the issues related to tiger conservation.

WHAT DOES THIS JOURNEY OFFER?

Students understand the tiger as an animal on top of the food chain and an animal facing extinction. They get sensitized towards the issues related to tiger conservation and also the flora and fauna of a natural deciduous habitat. This journey is especially important for students as it introduces them to the concepts of wildlife protection, responsible tourism and sustainable development.
