    Story

    Wild tigers are fighting for survival and we have lost 97% of the population over the last century. Issues such as poaching for medicinal use in the far East, human wildlife conflict and loss of habitat are all contributing to their decline. The frontline forest staff who patrol the jungles are all that stands between survival and extinction. However these brave men and women who work in harsh and difficult conditions are also at risk of disease and injury. These remote landscapes have little or no access to even basic healthcare. The Tulsi Foundation was set up as a voluntary organisation in 2015 to help provide assistance to front line staff who are living and working in remote jungle areas. We provide hands on medical training to help rangers cope with events such as snake bites, animal attacks, malaria as well major accidents and basic life support. Since we started we have trained over 650 rangers in 6 tiger reserves in central India. Currently we are the only organisation that is dedicated solely on the health of frontline rangers.

    The foundation was set up by Dr Chet Trivedy a front line emergency doctor who passion for wildlife led him to work in the hot sticky jungles of India which he calls home twice a year when he goes out to train forest rangers. The foundation was inspired by his faithful cat Tulsidas who is currently our patron and founding member. Its a case of little cats helping big cats and we hope that through our work we will play an important role in supporting the conservation of these magnificent big cats.

    We are currently raising funds to take out equipment such as bandages, splints and stretchers to remote areas. In many cases the nearest hospital is more than 30km away. We have recently launched our Tulsi Foundation "tiger" lanyard and pin badge and we are asking our friends to purchase the set for £10. This donation will go directly to the foundation. Please make sure you let us know your postal address so that we can ship them out to you. Please note there may be an additional charge for postage outside of the UK.

    Your donation of just £10 will help tigers and their protectors
