About MP Tiger Foundation Society

History

Madhya Pradesh, one of the strongest bastions of tigers in the country, has the national as well as global responsibility to protect the tiger habitat. As this responsibility is huge, people from all walks of life must join hands to protect the tiger and its habitat for the long term survival of human beings and other life-forms.

Madhya Pradesh Tiger Foundation Society is a non-profit making organization registered under THE MADHYA PRADESH SOCIETY REGISTRIKARAN ADHINIYAM, 1973. We work towards conservation of wildlife and their habitats with special emphasis on tiger.

To facilitate this goal the Madhya Pradesh Government launched a novel scheme on 15 January, 1997 to secure support from public and organizations outside the government through formation of an independent organization - Madhya Pradesh Tiger Foundation Society.

The society is headed by hon'ble Forest Minister of the state; the Chief Wildlife Warden of the state is it's secretary. Members include NGOs, Secretaries of forests, finance, tourism, public relation departments, senior officers of forest department and Wildlife experts. It has obtained Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA), 2010 registration and is authorized to receive donations from outside the country as well the socity would raise funds, accept equipment and vehicles, movable or immovable property from Indian as well as foreign donors.
