Tigers Forever: Saving the World's Most Endangered Big Cat Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A dramatically close encounter with tigers in their native lands, documented by award-winning National Geographic photographer Steve Winter, who tells the story of the worldwide fight to protect the species. Fascinating to animal lovers, environmentalists, and all lovers of cats, big and small.

National Geographic presents a testament to these noble, yet deeply endangered tigers. Photographing the big cats' primary habitats in India, Sumatra, and Thailand, Steve Winter gets up close and personal with tigers in their most private moments, both tender and terrifying. He tells the story in pictures and words of how he came to be one of the world's foremost advocates for this iconic animal. Partnering with Panthera, an international big cat advocacy group, Winter is able to weave in the voices of committed people from around the world who dedicate their lives to saving the tiger from extinction, and the inspiring tales of top conservationists; their concerns over the future of tigers; and their solutions, including hard work, community involvement, and indigenous cooperation in India, Sumatra, and Thailand. With more than 120 images of tigers in the wild and real encounters, this book is a page-turner and an inspiration to all who care about protecting the wild.

Synopsis:

Tigers are in trouble, and National Geographic photographer Steve Winter is on a one-man mission to address the plight of this magnificent cat – while there’s still time.  Together with Panthera, the world’s largest nonprofit organization dedicated to saving big cats, and its Tigers Initiative, Winter reveals a decade worth of stunning images and stories of tigers in their world. In Tigers Forever, readers follow Winter through Myanmar’s leech-infested jungles in search of tigers; into the forbidden realm of poachers in Sumatra; and witness the breathtaking intimacy between a tiger mother and her cub. Winter’s gripping images, along with co-author Sharon Guynup’s eloquent prose, tell the dramatic story of the tiger’s fight for survival, and the lengths to which one man would go to bring that story to the world. Above all else, Tigers Forever reveals the tiger itself: elusive, majestic, ferocious, powerful, mysterious—and in desperate need of our help to survive.
