Firstly I must thank Mr Harsh Vardhan of Tourism and Wildlife Society India, the great facilitator who has spent many years working relentlessly to protect India’s wildlife and without whom this project would not have been possible.  Ram Niwas Bishnoi of Budhnagar and the Bishnoi Tiger Force, my kind host who is known as “the Tiger” for his role in fighting for desert conservation and in crushing corruption.  The AFRI and Jodhpur Zoo Rescue Centre teams.  Dr Sukh Ram Bishnoi and family for insight combined with fun and giggles.  The Bishnoi Village Camp near Khejreli.  All of the Bishnoi families who have welcomed me into their homes with new experiences and delicious food.  James for his bravery at a young age and for always making me smile.  Tom for giving me the courage to dream this project possible and the support to make it a reality.  Finally friends and family at home who are always there with big hugs.  I know this is very cheesy on my part but I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has helped me be here.
