Tribal Tigers: Local Culture Promotes Coexistence with the World's Largest Wild Cat

Coexistence between tigers and the Idu Mishmi people of the Dibang Valley of Arunachal Pradesh where there are more tigers than in regional tiger reserves.

There’s a genetically distinct tiger population thriving in the Idu people’s community forests. Using camera traps and anthropological approaches, Sahil and Achili learn how and why tigers have been conserved in Idu forests without any government/NGO protection.
