What will you be doing?

Tigers4Ever is an established charity which is giving wild tigers wild futures & protecting the environment where they live. Our current focus is in Madhya Pradesh, India. We have 16 Trustees: 8 female/8 male & 1 vacancy. We have strong governance, financial, project management, fundraising, marketing & business skills. Our diverse backgrounds/interests include other charity/Governance roles, passion for wildlife & conservation. Our Chair has an unerring passion for wild tigers. Our current board has digital skills but as the demand for our services increases, we need to meet it & to deliver new ambitious projects by raising our existing profile, expanding our reach & making better use digital resources. The Tigers4Ever Board of Trustees meets 4 times per year for around 3 hours. Sub-committees are formed for specific projects/fundraiser planning, as needed. We ask our Trustees to be involved with our fundraising campaigns. More info We have community focused projects to encourage those living with wild tigers to protect them & ensure they have wild futures. We achieve our objectives by the Provision of: Buffer Zone Anti-Poaching Patrols; Permanent wildlife waterholes/reducing human-animal conflict; Vital equipment for Forest patrols; & Educational resources to enable children from the poorest rural communities to gain education/improved employment prospects. Our first of its kind “Buffer Zone Anti-Poaching Patrol” established in July 2015 in Bandhavgarh has seen a 98% reduction in wild tiger deaths due to poaching/poisoning in the last 8 years. The Buffer Forests around India’s wild tiger reserves account for 90-95% of all wild tiger deaths due to poaching/poisoning incidents annually. Historically, the Buffer forests were not patrolled. Wire snares, jaw traps & tethered snares are the preferred tools of tiger poachers. Our Patrollers search the buffer forests for poacher’s traps, seeking to disarm them before tigers/leopards fall prey. Patrols in the buffer forest act as a deterrent to would be poachers who fear capture if their traps are discovered. Since 2015-16, our Patrols have assisted with the early identification of/quenching forest fires which are common in the dry season. Such actions save the lives of many forest dwellers not just wild tigers.

What are we looking for?

Tigers4Ever is looking to appoint a new trustee to enhance the skills profile of its current Board of Trustees ( and replace a retiring trustee), bring fresh perspective to the future development of the Charity & help us better align ourselves with the demands of a modern technology driven supporter base.
