Continuing the pioneering work
Tiger Haven society was founded in 2002 by Kr. “Billy” Arjan Singh, at the age of 84. It was started to keep alive the ground-breaking work of India’s most globally famous, respected and successful wildlife warrior, activist and author, long after his departure from this world.
He died, at the age of 92, on 1st January 2010 – the Year of the Tiger – fighting till the last and leaving behind a ferocious legacy. This included the creation of Uttar Pradesh’s only National Park, the successful re-introduction of leopards and a tiger into the wild, and a reputation for fearlessness, which befitted an Honorary Tiger.
His ashes are interred at the site of his home – Tiger Haven, which is now being converted into a Wildlife centre.
