Denver Zoo: Battle to Save the Tiger
49 Minute Running Time
The Tiger, our most charismatic big cat, faces extinction. David Attenborough narrates a moving documentary tracing the history of this battle from the late 1960s to the present day, when skins of freshly killed tigers are being illegally traded in huge numbers from India to Tibet and China. This is the story of three champions of conservation - an undercover investigator, Belinda Wright; a tireless political campaigner, Valmik Thapar and a whistle-blowing scientist, Raghu Chundawat. Their Dogged pursuit of the truth and of the interests of the tiger have brought them into stark conflict with Project Tiger, the very government body set up to ensure the big cats' continued existence.
