Emerald Forest - Return of the Tigers

Panna, among the world's most beautifully landscaped jungles, was blessed to have more than 40 endangered wild tigers. But in 2009 alarm bells rang as all the tigers had been poached. That is when the Madhya Pradesh Forest Dept, India, had an audacious plan and under the leadership of Field Director Mr.R.Sreenivasa Murthy, the relocation and revival of tigers began. Today a decade later,there are more than 50 tigers. The film Emerald Forest is based on this iconic story and celebrates conservation. In these times of species extinction and climate change, this is one of the biggest stories of HOPE, of how Human Vision and Determination brought a forest and its key wildlife species, back from the brink, where even tribes involved in poaching were reformed and inspired to work towards conservation of forests and its wildlife.
