Dear Micheal, It was immense pleasure in sharing the train journey from Delhi to Sawai Madhavpur and know your passion for these incredible cats. It was great going through amazing photographs captured of the tigers in various subtle moods. I take great comfort from the fact, that you are a true champion focussed on the conservation of these magnificent cats, for the future generations to marvel. I wish you the very best, and many long years of pursuing your passion. Many Thanks.

Hi , I discovered your web-site through Jagdish Pepalla who was with you in the train journey from Delhi to S.Madhopur for your recent visit to Ranthambore. Amazing pictures ! Tiger , in my opinion , is the most regal of all cats , and your photographs have captured that impressively . Will keep returning to your website to see tigers !

Hi Michael, I love your new photos from your recent trip to Kahna & Ranthambhore, especially your photo of Satras orphaned sub adult cubs (T74 & T75 I think are there ID codes). The Forest Department have done a great job ensuring their survival after the tragic loss of their Mum Satra (T17). I'm shocked to read in your tiger news that those in charge are planning to do with Machali after her death. I totally agree with you that their plans are appalling! Machali is an icon who deserves to be treated with dignity & respect and when her time comes, she should be laid to rest in peace. They could honour her life & legacy with a plaque or something which people could visit to remember her & pay their respect if they wanted to. Good luck on your next trip to Rhanthambhore, hope you're lucky enough to get some incredible photos of Unnis (T19) and her new cubs. Thank you for all you do to help raise awareness of the plight of wild tigers.

Michael Vickers, I loved your work. Your website is a leader in the conservation of the wild tiger population. The testimony of Dr. Ullas Karanth K - WSC-India says it all. Thank you very much.

Michael you have have created a wonderful educative wild-life and conservation awareness site. I saw a tiger in the wild for the first time at the Moharli range of the "Tadoba Andhari tiger reserve" and was floored by the sight.Just majestic and beautiful. Your updated information is of great benifit to conservationists and tiger enthusiasts. Keep up the good work and wishing you all the best in your passion for tiger trekking and photography.

Thanks Michael for the follow on Twitter. Thanks too for the Stunning Photography and being my eyes to places and animals i would never see first hand. The first line in your profile sums up the best way we can help all animals from cruelty and extinction in the coming years.

I can't imagine a world without Tigers .. cats are my favorite animals so I am fiercely protective of them. I hope something can be done to help Tigers so they can propser on the planet and peacefully co-exist with human beings.

Thanks for the pictures of Machali and her daughter Krishna ( T19). Every new picture of Machali is a bonus. It is unfortunate that her fate has been predetermined by the authorities, and I agree that scattering her ashes over the Lakes area where she reigned supreme for so many years would be more appropriate. Great to know that you are returning to Ranthambhore again this month, and I look forward to pictures of T19's new litter, and of course Machali. So too, were the shots of T17's boys. That they survived her death is a miracle ! Good luck !

It is simply inconceivable: a world without wild tigers. Yet that is what's becoming a reality before our very eyes. And it's all being caused by man - not unavoidably, but to feed the insatiable appetite for money that drives the unscrupulous, immoral criminals who deal in tiger parts. Any action that can prevent the further slaughter of tigers and the destruction of their natural habitat is therefore of the utmost importance and value. The depiction of these uniquely beautiful and magnificent animals in photographs is one of the most potent tools in bringing to the world's attention the horrendous danger tigers are facing in the wild. So we should all offer profound thanks to Michael for his excellent work in this field. Thank you.

Dear Mike, We met briefly last year at the St Pancras event, I just wanted to drop a note to say that I am such an admirer of your work. It is both a pleasure and a privilege to see your wonderful images of the tigers which I am working to protect. Thank you for your tireless efforts to share the natural beauty of these incredible animals in the wild, where they of course belong. With best wishes, from all the team at David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation, Erica

Hi Michael. Hope your trip to Kanha has been good, and I look forward to your pictures of the trip. It is a pity that you are unable to visit Sariska where T18 is located. I hope the issues are resolved soon. The snapshot of the tiger cub in the Sunderbans is unique, as although there is a largish tiger population there, getting to actually see one is a problem. I hear that T 19 is thriving in Ranthambhore with her new litter, so, hope that you will be able to post some pictures soon. Thanks again!

We met at 3 tiger sightings at Ranthambhore Tiger Preserve this week. Love your photos. Hope you see the new cubs this trip, would love to see photos! Katie & Chris Bakken

Michael, I absolutely love your photographs of the tigers. My favorite were those taken of the tigers in water. I never knew that they enjoyed being in the water so much. I will definitely look at your other albums. Thank you for your work and your obvious love of nature. Chris

Hi Michael - I travelled to Panna, Bandhavgarh and Kanha last year and was privileged to see some of the most amazing wildlife - including the magnificent tiger - a dream of mine since I was 5 years of age. Your photos capture the beauty of these amazing animals - and also highlight their vulnerability. We need more people like you to raise awareness of the plight of the tiger, rhino, elephant - the beautiful birdlife - and I hope to be able to contribute to that awareness. Love your photos.
