Conservation Tribe

In this episode I talk with Sarika Khanwilkar - PhD candidate at Columbia University and Founder of Wild Tiger. The mission of Wild Tiger is to conserve India's Bengal tigers and their habitats by conducting social and ecological research in central India, understanding captive tigers in the US and engaging and empowering communities in central India and in the United States.
