  • Project Tiger is a tiger conservation programme launched in April 1973 by the Government of India during Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's tenure.
  • The project aims at ensuring a viable population of Bengal tigers in their natural habitats, protecting them from extinction, and preserving areas of biological importance as a natural heritage forever represented as close as possible the diversity of ecosystems across the distribution of tigers in the country.
  • The project's task force visualized these tiger reserves as breeding nuclei, from which surplus animals would migrate to adjacent forests.
  • Funds and commitment were mastered to support the intensive program of habitat protection and rehabilitation under the project.
  • The government has set up a Tiger Protection Force to combat poachers and funded relocation of villagers to minimize human-tiger conflicts.
  • Project Tiger was launched in Jim Corbett National Park of Uttarakhand in 1973 by National Tiger Conservation Authorities (NTCA)
