Valmik Thapar

Valmik Thapar has spent nearly 38 years serving the wild tigers of India.

In the process he has written more than 20 books, presented nearly a dozen films, for both the BBC and several other international television networks, created one of the first truly wildlife non-governmental organisations, Ranthambhore Foundation, and served nearly 200 policy making committees of both federal and state governments, including one constituted by The Supreme Court of India.

He is today a severe critic of government policy regarding tigers, wildlife and the habitat they live in. He continues to campaign and fight for a new way of thinking and action in the governance of the natural world in India.
