Efforts to eradicate poaching-illegal trade and prevent villager-to-tiger conflicts at the Tipeswar Wildlife Sanctuary, Maharashtra, Central India, where tigers have been traveling since 2017 . There are 5-10 tigers living inside and outside this protected area, but until now, the state and the private sector have not been able to provide sufficient protection. I think the significance of conservation activities carried out by JTEF is to develop support for small but important places that are not supported by large organizations. In the future, we will create the basics of protected area management, such as training rangers, and create a framework for the participation of residents in conservation activities, making the area around the protected area a place where tigers and people can coexist.
