Like the majority of other wildlife conservation organizations worldwide, Indian Tiger Welfare Society focuses primarily on co-operating with local population on innovative solutions, which improve their lives and protect wildlife; undertake work considered by many to be risky or difficult; assist communities in implementing local conservation solutions; maximize the value of each investment made in conservation.
In a more narrow sense, ITWS is an independent conservation body, established to spread awareness and work toward creating safe habitat for tigers, notably Indian white tiger and Royal Bengal tiger. Sharing global concerns of protecting and preserving these endangered species, the Society works in close collaboration with organizations sharing similar concerns.
ITWS's members strive to ensure safe and carefree atmosphere to Indian tigers in compliance with the organization's goals. The leaders of the Indian Tiger Welfare Society are nature lovers, who share global concerns of protecting endangered species. The team at ITWS is a mix of experienced members and young enthusiasts, including volunteers, biologists and experts from other fields. The Society boasts currently an extensive network of professionals, with members working together in pursuing the same goals.
By spreading awareness among local population, ITWS strives to provide better future to tigers.
This can be achieved through seminars organization, pamphlets distribution, and extensive web activism, aimed at spreading awareness concerning the issues that must be addressed. On its official web site the organization offers information on various wildlife conservations, tiger reserves, wildlife sanctuaries, national parks and Indian wildlife organizations, as well as the negative impact of India wildlife safaris on general well-being of tigers and other representatives of cat family.
Available here are also details on cat family and tigers in particular, including cheetah, lion, leopard, Indian tiger, African tiger, White Bengal tiger and Snow tiger among others with suggested jungle lodges and tour packages for promoting tiger tourism in the country. ITWS's existence is due to the continuous support and patronage on part of general masses and volunteers.
In order to spread awareness about protection of tigers, Indian Tiger Welfare Society organizes special tigers tours, such as Tiger with Delhi and Agra, Bengal Tiger with Taj Mahal, Indian Tiger with Khajuraho Temples, South India Wildlife Tour, Sunderban Tiger Tour, Bengal Tiger Tour with Taj and Rafting, Indian Wildlife with Cultural India Tour, Indian Lion with Goa Beach Tour and India Tiger and Rhino Tour. By co-operating with a number of eco tourism organizations in India, Indian Tiger Welfare Society supports travel with such activities that are considered to be beneficial to the environment, regenerating and preserving it.
Saving the ecological heritage of India is the primary objective of major eco tourism organizations that can be attained by spreading awareness among members of the local community.
