Burning Bright: UNDP and GEF in the Tiger Landscape

This publication highlights the unique contribution of ten GEF financed, UNDP supported projects in six tiger range countries (Bhutan, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar and Thailand), demonstrating how conservation activities in tiger habitat can accomplish more than the preservation of one iconic wildlife species. Weaving through this narrative, traditional knowledge, religious beliefs, folklore and artwork illustrate the role tigers have played in shaping cultural identity and history throughout Asia, further illuminating the imperative for conserving Panthera tigris.
