The story of Tigeropolis shows Tigers are losing their habitat – and are very much under threat in India.

Tigers are truly magnificent animals, yet there are probably just over 3,000 tigers left in the wild today. At the turn of last century tiger numbers where estimated at about 100,000, so in just over a hundred years tiger numbers have declined by about 95%.

So what do tigers need to survive and thrive? Tigers basically need three things – space to roam, enough prey to feed on and protection from poaching.

It all sounds simple enough, but to make it happen people need to care enough to actually change things on the ground. Thankfully there are a number of organisations trying to help.

‘TOOOWEEEEP!’ ‘TOOOWEEEEP!’ ‘TOOOWEEEEP!’

Posted on November 16th, 2015

We were delighted when Richard E Grant agreed to work on the project and that he was intrigued by the notion of vegetarian tigers fighting to save Tigeropolis. But just how good would such a serious actor be at mimicking elephant calls? And did he growl ? Yes, these were the key questions we asked ourselves when casting Richard to narrate our first Tigeropolis book – Beyond the Deep Forest. But we needn’t have concerned ourselves. The Swaziland born star of Game of Thrones, Jekyll & Hyde, Downton Abbey, Dr Who, Corpse Bride, Gosford Park and Withnail & I was the perfect choice for the reading. Read the rest of this entry »
