Tigers in Corbett Tiger ReserveThe Corbett Foundation
The Corbett Foundation, named after the legendary Jim Corbett, is a registered non - government, non - profit public charitable trust established on April 22nd 1994 by Mr. Dilip D. Khatau, Chairman of Varun Shipping Co. Ltd., Mumbai and associated group of companies including the company which owns the Infinity Resorts. Since its establishment, the Foundation has been working for the conservation of biodiversity. The Foundation is mainly funded by Mr. Khatau's companies and associates and receives project grants from WWF – India, the Paul Hamlyn Foundation of UK, the Millichope Foundation of UK and various individual donors.

The activities of Corbett Foundation are conducted at two divisions - one based in village Dhikuli near the Corbett National Park and the other in Tera village of Abdasa Taluka in Kutch.

Wildlife Programme
The main objective of the wildlife programmes of the Foundation are to reduce the human-animal conflict in the buffer zone of the Corbett Tiger Reserve. A major problem faced by the local rural people living at the periphery of the tiger reserve is that of loss of livestock by predators like the leopard and the tiger and crop damage from wild herbivores. In 1995, the Foundation introduced an interim relief programme to provide on the spot ex-gratia financial assistance to the affected people. Later in 1997, the WWF–India acknowledged the scheme under its Tiger Conservation Programme to provide security cover to the tiger from poisoning. Under the scheme a vehicle and communication equipment has been provided to the Foundation and funding continues to be provided. The Foundation also assists humans injured or killed by wild animals. The Foundation also undertakes wildlife related research projects.

Medical Programme
The medical programme of the Foundation has its origins in a contact programme conducted by Mr. Khatau before the Foundation was formed. One of the major problems faced by the villagers was inaccessibility to medical facilities. Keeping this in mind the Foundation started a Rural Medical Outreach Programme under which outdoor medical camps are organised in villages on the edges of the Corbett Tiger Reserve. About 50 nearby villages are benefited from this programme. This programme receives financial aid from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, UK. Recently the Foundation has undertaken a TB-eradication project in collaboration with the World Memorial Fund For Disaster Relief.

Tigers in Corbett Tiger ReserveAwareness Programme
This started way back in 1995. The Foundation runs an awareness programme for school children and villagers. The programme consists of exposure visit to Corbett National Park, workshops, bird watch camps, film shows and activities during Wildlife Week (October 1 to 7). Presently, the Foundation has undertaken a six-month Elephant Awareness Project in collaboration with Centre for Environment Education to be conducted in 20 schools in the buffer zone of the Corbett Tiger Reserve.

Eco-tourism
The Eco-Tourism wing – the recent addition to the Foundation - promotes the laws & ethics of eco-tourism and monitors tourism activity in the Corbett area. The Foundation offers assistance for shaping interpretation facilities and implementation of eco-tourism. The interpretation facilities at Infinity Resorts have been developed with the assistance of the Foundation. The foundation is also equipped to conduct orientation workshops for tourism establishments and related organisations.

Kutch Ecological Research Centre
This division of the Foundation, with its base in Kutch area, was started in 1998. A medical programme for 45 villages is being successfully run and efforts are being made to win the trust and belief of local communities to win their support for conservation. Initiatives are being taken to bring some of the areas important for wildlife, under protection and to improve habitat. Projects are also being devised for grassland management and water harvesting. The Kutch Ecological Research Centre has also been contributing to the relief and rehabilitation work after the January 26th 2001 earthquake.
