About Us

The Madhya Pradesh Tiger Foundation Society is a non-profit organization registered under the Madhya Pradesh Society Registrikaran Adhiniyam, 1973.
The society was formed by Madhya Pradesh State Government on 15th January 1997. The idea was to facilitate achieving the goal of wildlife conservation (with special emphasis on tiger) by ensuring participation from public and all other organizations committed for conservation.


We envisions a world where human development is integrated with conservation of nature and all the processes that nurture life on earth. A world where human beings respect the rights of other creatures to exist and flourish in their natural habitat and where conflicts between people and wild animals are effectively mitigated and amicably resolved.


Our mission is to garner effective public support through campaigning and mobilizing communities near wildlife areas, citizens of our country and motivate them to join hands for conservation and management of wildlife, wildlife habitats and to fight against wildlife crime.


Madhya Pradesh, one of the strongest bastions of tigers in the country, has the national as well as global responsibility to protect the tiger habitat. As this responsibility is huge, people from all walks of life must join hands to protect the tiger and its habitat for the long term survival of human beings and other life-forms.
To facilitate this goal the Madhya Pradesh Government launched a novel scheme on 15 January, 1997 to secure support from public and organizations outside the government through formation of an independent organization - Madhya Pradesh Tiger Foundation Society. The society is headed by hon'ble Forest Minister of the state; the Chief Wildlife Warden of the state is it's secretary. Members include NGOs, Secretaries of forests, finance, tourism, public relation departments, senior officers of forest department and Wildlife experts.
