Directed by Academy Award winner Ross Kauffman for Discovery Channel
The population of wild tigers in Asia has dropped from over one hundred thousand to less than four thousand. Tigerland illustrates how shifting political realities in Russia and India created a lucrative poaching underworld that decimated the tiger population. In the face of corruption and cultural apathy, Russian scientist Pavel Fomenko and the conservationist family of Kailash Sankhala of India lead inspirational tiger-preservation movements to keep the legendary animal from disappearing entirely.
