The 10ft Liger (from Tiger Family) who's still growing. He looks like something
from a pre - historic age or a fantastic creation from Hollywood. But he is
very much living flesh and blood - as he proves every time he opens his gigantic
mouth to roar. Part lion, part tiger, he is not just a big cat but a huge one,
standing 10ft tall on his back legs. Called a Liger, in reference to his crossbreed
parentage, he is the largest of all the cat species. On a typical day he will
devour 20lb of meat, usually beef or chicken, and is capable of eating 100lb
at a single setting. At just three years old, he is already weighs half a ton.
When he is fully grown he is expected to reach 12ft, and almost 90 Tonns.

As recently as 50 years ago, eight tiger subspecies roamed throughout Asia.
Now only five remain. Human pressures from hunting and habitat destruction exterminated
the Balinese, Caspian, and Javan tigers in this century.
Based on tiger's reproductive success rate when the animal and its habitat is
left unmolested, the tiger as a species is in its evolutionary prime. (The same
can not be said of the Panda, for example.) Thus, if the tigers were to disappear,
the blame would squarely be place upon the human shoulders. India, being home
to about 60% of the world's wild tiger population, is now the best hope for

Nature Safari promotes Eco-Tourism, Conservation and Development
Nature Safari believes that we are stewards on this earth; that we have not
inherited it from our parents, but rather we are renting it from our children;
that if tourism does not contribute to the protection of flora and fauna, the
prevention and repair of environmental degradation, the economic well-being
of local communities, and respect for local cultures; it is not a justifiable
activity. Outlined below are the ways in which Nature Safari and Tiger Den Resorts
have translated these beliefs into action.
We link commercial tourism to local conservation programs
We encourage our guests to donate to a wide variety of conservation projects.
Although at this time there is no way for us to know the dollar amount that
has been donated; we are sure that the total sum is significant. We channelise
our donations through Care for the Wild International, U.K.
