I was not aware of the effects that a declining tiger population can have on our lives, but Gnarly Troop-India made me aware of them. Now, not only do I donate on a regular basis towards conserving and protecting the tiger but I also encourage my friends to do so!
It's been almost five years since I have been donating towards Gnarly Troop India’s efforts to reduce poaching of endangered animals. Nothing feels better than knowing that I’m doing my bit towards wildlife conservation.
I always loved wild animals but was apprehensive about donating. Gnarly Troop changed it all with its transparent approach and clear details of how my donation would be used. Now, I donate regularly and look forward to my updates from GT.
Through Project Sahastra Jyoti, 69 households and 25 shops in Annpur Hamlet in the Sundarbans now have access to solar electricity! This prevents villagers from entering forest areas in search of fuelwood, and tigers from entering the well-lit village – protecting both tigers and villagers! We have been working extensively with local communities in the Sundarbans to provide them with cost effective renewable energy solutions - while reducing the pressure on surrounding forests. This smart project has also helped improve living conditions here – children can now study till after sunset, food is prepared without toxic fumes being emitted, shops are open till late, and people no longer fear sudden tiger attacks.
