Lifetime Achievement Award For Tigers!

Have you ever heard of tigers being awarded? Travel Operators for Tigers(TOFT) has done just that recently by honouring two tigers with lifetime achievement awards. Of course, the tigers themselves were not there to receive the awards, and it was all symbolic. But the tigers were acknowledged for their contribution to tourism revenues in Ranthambhore National Park.


The two award winning tigers - Machhali and Sundar - together are estimated to have helped tour operators earn aggregate revenue of several million dollars. 


It is not just monetary contribution. The two tigers have also helped considerably in keeping the population of the park stead. DNA News says - "Machhali and Sunder are symbols of hope for tigers, whose population has been dwindling steadily in the country, primarily due to poaching. While Machhali, a dominant resident of Rajasthan's Ranthambore tourism zone since 1997, has brought up 11 cubs, Sundar has sired more than 35 tigers in the Tala tourism range in Madhya Pradesh. Two of Machhali's cubs are now in the Sariska National Park in Rajasthan."
