Bengal tiger

India, another wonderful destination that has much to offer if you choose it for your volunteering experience.

A country with a rich cultural heritage, marvelous people, impressive monuments, and landscapes that will leave you in awe.

India is home to various national parks such as Ranthambore, Sundarbans, Jim Corbett, or Bandhavgarh, which are a must-visit if you want to enjoy nature and wildlife. That’s why today we’ll tell you about some characteristics and curiosities of the most popular animal.

The Bengal tiger

Although India is home to the largest population of Bengal tigers, you can also find them in other countries such as Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, and Myanmar.

The Bengal tiger adapts quite easily, and that’s why it can be found in different habitats that provide them with the necessary resources for survival. However, it is true that all of them currently face threats due to the loss of these habitats, poaching, and human-tiger conflicts.

We can find them in:

  • Tropical and subtropical forests: Both evergreen and deciduous.
  • Mangroves: Especially in the Sundarbans, where they have adapted to living and hunting in an aquatic environment.
  • Grasslands and savannas: Where they can find abundant prey.
  • Mountain forests: At varied altitudes, depending on the availability of prey and human pressure.

The Bengal tiger is the most numerous tiger subspecies, with an estimated population of around 2,500 to 3,000 individuals in the wild.

They have orange fur with vertical black stripes that vary in thickness and length. Their belly and inner parts of the legs are white. Males are usually larger than females, weighing between 180 and 250 kg, and measuring 2.7 to 3.1 meters in length, including the tail. Females weigh between 100 and 160 kg.

They are carnivores and mainly feed on deer, wild boars, and buffaloes.

This majestic animal is also an important cultural symbol and a key species in the ecosystem, playing a crucial role in regulating prey populations and maintaining the health of forest habitats.



They are excellent swimmers and enjoy water, unlike many other felines. They can swim long distances and often dive into rivers and lakes to cool off.


The roar of a Bengal tiger can be heard up to 3 kilometers away. This roar allows them to communicate with other tigers in their territory. They use a variety of vocalizations to communicate, including growls, grunts, meows, and purrs. Each sound has a specific purpose, such as mating calls or warning other tigers.


Unlike lions that hunt in packs, Bengal tigers are solitary hunters. Each tiger has its own territory, which it fiercely defends. Male territories may overlap with those of several females, but males generally do not tolerate the presence of other males. They are masters of ambush. They use their natural camouflage to silently approach their prey before making a deadly leap. They can reach speeds of up to 60 km/h over short distances during the hunt. They use a combination of urine, feces, and tree markings to mark their territories. These chemical signals communicate their presence and dominance to other tigers.

They have night vision six times better than that of humans, making them very effective hunters at night.


Although Bengal tigers are generally orange with black stripes, there are rare variations such as white tigers (due to a genetic mutation), which are equally impressive and are a great attraction (unfortunately) in wildlife parks and zoos. Each tiger’s stripes are unique, similar to fingerprints in humans. No two tigers have the same stripe pattern.


Female tigers are extremely dedicated mothers. They raise their cubs alone and teach them to hunt. Cubs stay with their mother until they are two or three years old before dispersing to establish their own territories.

In the wild, Bengal tigers can live from 10 to 15 years, although in captivity they can live up to 20 years due to the absence of threats and a controlled diet.

If you want to learn more about this incredible animal, we recommend that you travel to India and visit some of its National Parks.

It’s a spectacle of nature.

Quality time spent with family strengthens emotional bonds, promotes communication, and contributes to the emotional well-being of its members. 

Spending quality time with family and being able to disconnect from our hectic routines is not only enriching but also necessary.

Sometimes we forget to communicate, connect, and dedicate time to each other. Each one of us lives focused on our jobs, schools… And it’s necessary to find the opportunity to pause and take care of ourselves.

Quality time spent with family strengthens emotional bonds, promotes communication, and contributes to the emotional well-being of its members. And of course, it creates lifelong positive memories.

At Cooperating Volunteers, we suggest moving away from those ‘more superficial’ trips (which can also be fantastic), but we invite you to live this experience to bring out our most empathetic and humanitarian side.

Family volunteering gives us the opportunity to be part of a positive impact, promoting values of solidarity and social responsibility.

There are many families who choose to experience these trips focused on cooperation and direct involvement with different communities around the world, where living conditions are very different and sometimes entirely precarious.

Projects are tailored to different ages, allowing us to work together.

An incredible way to fill our suitcase with memories, learning, and knowledge.

And although stepping out of our comfort zone often feels daunting, we assure you firsthand that it’s worth it.

We can adapt both the destination and the duration of our projects to fit your needs.

  • Sense of purpose: Provides a sense of purpose by contributing your skills and experiences to meaningful causes.

A volunteering initiative with leadership and impact through the educational action program.

When we talk about social volunteering, we refer to all those actions and activities carried out altruistically, selflessly, and with the aim of addressing multiple problems and needs of different communities, always focused on education and self-sufficiency.

Education is essential because it provides the tools and knowledge necessary for personal, social, and economic development.

Our goal is to create self-sufficient communities and provide opportunities for the future personal development of each member. The message is not to ‘give’, but to accompany in the process of training for self-managed provision.

At Cooperating Volunteers, many of our destinations and projects embrace this type of volunteering. Some of our projects include: community programs, education, women’s empowerment…

And although they are completely different from each other, they share a single objective: progress towards a society that can embrace us all in the same way.

If you are someone who is restless, who needs to see a change in the future, volunteering is an experience tailor-made for you.
