F W Champion Books

Frederick Walter Champion (1893 - 1970) was an English forestry officer, who worked in British India and East Africa. He was a pioneering wildlife photographer and conservationist, campaigning hard for the protection of tigers and their forest habitats. His commitment to conservation inspired his friend Jim Corbett, among other hunters-turned-conservationists. Together with Corbett, he was a founding member of India's first national park established in 1935, which was renamed to Corbett National Park in 1957.
