“Home to around three quarters of the world’s wild tigers, India is perhaps the last remaining hope to insure their survival.   The losses of habitat and illegal poaching have had a devastating impact on their numbers over recent years. This ancient shrine, which was once used by Hindus perhaps for prayer and seeking solace from the sun, a large male tiger has now claimed for his own. In an effort to save one of the rarest cats in the world, India’s Project Tiger has been met with good success.  For the lucky observer to see one of these magnificent creatures in the wild, one begins to realize why the royal Bengal tiger is truly the “Jewel of India.” - John Banovich
