Inspired by true events, “The Adventures of Shakti and Her Three Cubs” is a fictional story, about a day in the life of a tigress. This story book has been developed for children (6-10 years), using vibrant illustrations and simple storytelling. The Bengal tiger (Panthera tigris tigris) is one of the six extant sub-species found in Nepal, India, Bhutan and Bangladesh.

With large dietary needs and long-range dispersing behavior, these territorial tigers are apex predators in the eco system. According to the 2018 Tiger Census, Nepal is home to 235 wild tigers, which is an upward trajectory for the conservation of the species. However, tigers are still threatened by illegal activities such as poaching, infrastructure development and habitat decline. This book aims to highlight the plight of the tiger and increase awareness about the need to conserve the species.
