TVS Motor donates minibus to Sathyamangalam Tiger Reserve

Srinivasan Services Trust, the CSR arm of TVS Motor Company has succeeded largely in facilitating the process of sustainable development in over 2500 villages spread across the states of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, and Himachal Pradesh in the last 25 years. TVS Motor Company (SST) is privileged to support Tiger Reserves in various states like Tamil Nadu and Karnataka through the conservation of habitat, enhancing water availability, strengthening the protection of wildlife, and improving visitor and staff facilities. The trust has carried out certain habitat improvement work and support to anti-poaching camps in Mudumalai Tiger Reserve in the last few years.

As a token of appreciation and encouragement for the excellent management of Sathyamangalam Tiger Reserve by Director and his team, TVS Motor Company (SST) has decided to donate a minibus to STR.

In the year 2022, TVS Motor Company (SST) decided to support tiger conservation initiatives to the tune of Rs 20 lakh in the state of Tamil Nadu, to begin with.  As a part of this initiative, the trust is privileged to supply a minibus TATA Starbus 16+ LP410/29 FBV to the Sathyamangalam Tiger Reserve for visitor use.

As part of conservation efforts, the trust has supplied over 30 Fenix LR 50R high luminescent search lights, 150 Fenix TR 16 searchlights, and 12 units of GPS to the Directors of Mudumalai, Sathyamangalam and Kalakkad Mundanthurai Tiger Reserves. The high luminescent flashlights would be extremely useful for night patrolling, anti-poaching raids and elephant anti-depredation activities.

TVS Motor (SST) is grateful to the Government of Tamil Nadu and the Forest department for providing with such wonderful opportunities in the conservation of nature and for accepting partnerships with TVS Motor (SST) in the above ventures. TVS Motor (SST) would like to express gratitude to Hon. Minister of Forests, PCCF and PCCF & CWLW and the Field Directors for their support to be a part of the Tiger Conservation Programme.
