Strengthening the Anti-Poaching Camps of Tiger Reserves in the State
Srinivasan Services Trust (SST), the social arm of Sundaram-Clayton Ltd. and TVS Motor Company, handed over 180 numbers of high luminescent searchlights and 12 numbers of GPS to Directors of Mudumalai, Sathyamangalam and Kalakkad Mundanthurai Tiger Reserves as part of wildlife conservation initiatives in Tamil Nadu. The high luminescent flashlights would be extremely useful for night patrolling, anti-poaching raids and elephant anti-depredation activities. The handover ceremony to support Tiger Conservation happened in the presence of Hon. Minister of Forests, Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (Wild Life), Chief Wildlife Warden (CWLW) and Field Directors.

The Trust has been closely working with Field Directors for the Tiger conservation Programme.
