Lost Land of the Tiger
Lost Land of the Tiger is a three-part nature documentary series produced by the BBC Natural History Unit which follows a scientific expedition to the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. The expedition team is made up of specialist zoologists, explorers and the BBC crew. Together, they explore wilderness areas from the lowland jungles to high-altitude slopes, in search of rare animals and plants. The focus of the expedition is to investigate the status of the tiger in Bhutan, where little is known of the cat’s distribution or population density. Evidence of a healthy population of tigers would elevate Bhutan’s importance as a sanctuary for this endangered species. It would also support tiger conservationist Dr. Alan Rabinowitz’s proposal for a vast protected corridor linking the fragmented pockets of tiger habitat which lie to the south of the Himalayas.
