Hans Dalal, a tiger conservationist and the founder of the PROWL NGO, talks about the lack of awareness and the fear regarding animals amongst people. His NGO functions in Maharashtra and Karnataka, along with the forest departments and local villagers, to protect tigers. According to him, if humans don’t learn to co-exist with other species, there’ll be no existence at all.
Hans Dalal is a Sound Engineer by occupation, but on a happen-chance trip to Kanha National Park in Madhya Pradesh, he became acquainted with India's National animal, the tiger. From that moment on, he has dedicated himself towards tiger conservation. He joined a course in wildlife conservation with Tiger Watch, an NGO at Ranthambore, and went on to found the PROWL NGO in 2013, which works with the Maharashtra forest department for tiger preservation in Maharashtra and Telangana.
