Valmik Thapar
Special Arrangement 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.
