Description: The national animal of India, the Bengal Tiger, is featured up-close in this IMAX presentation, India: Kingdom of the Tiger. Based on the life of writer/activist Jim Corbett, this program discusses how these tigers became endangered species and what has been done to protect them. Since the mid-19th century, Bengal Tigers were hunted by wealthy Englishmen for their teeth, fur, and organs. The result was a staggering decline in the tiger population. A hunter-turned-conservationist, Corbett wrote thrilling adventure stories that promoted the care and respect of these animals. This large-format presentation is directed by Bruce Neibaur, who also directed the IMAX film Mysteries of Egypt.~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide
