Since 2002, Born Free has managed a sanctuary for rescued tigers in Bannerghatta National Park in southern India.
At Bannerghatta, with the assistance of Born Free’s Indian partner, Wildlife SOS, Born Free is giving rescued tigers space, peace and privacy in a section of the park closed to visitors.The enclosures or 'kraals' offer each tiger a hectare of natural forest habitat and access to water, in which they typically love to relax.
Tragically, the conditions and events the tigers have suffered pre-rescue have left them unsuitable for release into the wild, but at Bannerghatta they receive the care and respect they deserve.
Gopal was captured by authorities after coming into conflict with people when he was found preying on their cattle. Due to this conflict Gopal will never be released back to the wild.
He now lives at Born Free’s tiger sanctuary in Bannerghatta National Park, southern India, which provides a natural forest habitat for rescued tigers in a section of the park closed to visitors.
Your adoption will help fund Gopal’s lifetime care.
