Quarterly news from Sumatra
So what’s the news going on there?
Some predicted that the tiger would start hunting during the day when the cows were in the enclosures for the night and it did not happen. Today we have the beginning of April and for 2.5 months there has been no killing of cows by a tiger, which can be considered a real victory for Zbyňek Hrábek and our team , that is, all of us who support this unique way of protecting the Sumatran tigers. You could say that this is the first major tiger rescue that has exceeded all possibilities, because few believed it. As they say, never say never! Success.
The Green Patrol team also continues to monitor the Eye of the Tiger and, of course, to care for the reserve, maintenance of campsites, cutting paths, and is now demolishing the old Cottage “French” to gradually transfer suitable material for use in the reconstruction of the cottage “Čolese”, which will become a guard post; they are waiting for the rough work of transporting heavy material in difficult terrain.
In the mean future, Zbyněk Hrábek also focused on the Blue Life project,where we were forced to repair all the cottages of the volunteer beach camp , because they were eaten by termites after a year of inactivity.
Finally, proof that the whole tiger mission is working, because at the last monitoring, our amazing tiger male appeared in front of the trail camara, which became a concern of the neighborhood, but we know it’s different. As long as the tiger has enough feral pigs, sambar deer in the forest, until then it does not need to leave its safe territories and hunt cows. This is our great ongoing mission to point local people against poaching and show them that poachers end up robbing them all, not just tigers, of their natural prey.
Despite the fact that our project wings are stretching to other countries, Green Life and Blue Life in Sumatra will always be the top of our unique journey, which is supported by people precisely because it makes sense to everyone.
Thank you for any financial support.
