The India Cultural Center of Utah will sponsor a presentation on tiger conservation on Monday, 7 p.m. at the WPR in Orson Spencer Hall on the University of Utah campus.

Speakers are Harshawardhan and Poonam Dhanwatey, the founders of Tiger Research and Conservation Trust (TRACT).

TRACT is a non-profit organization that focuses on tiger conservation and habitat within and beyond the boundaries of protected reserves in the forests of central India, where Harshawardhan and Poonam were raised.

The free event is co-sponsored by Utah’s Hogle Zoo, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Wildlife Without Borders Tiger Conservation Program, and the Indian Students Association-University of Utah
