Paul Lends Support To Tiger Time
Paul McCartney has lent his support to TigerTime, the new global
campaign to save the wild tiger. Wild tiger numbers have collapsed from
100,000 eighty years ago, to a mere 3,200 today. TigerTime was
established in June of this year by the renowned British artist and
conservationist David Shepherd CBE
who launched the campaign on his 80th birthday.
In an emotional and heartfelt plea, Paul said, ''Losing the wild
tiger would be unforgivable. We need people power to save it! Please get
behind this fabulous initiative. Whatever you do, wherever you live,
your voice matters! Every signature makes the campaign stronger.'
In welcoming Paul's support, David Shepherd said, 'The vast majority
of people are shocked to the core when they hear that there are only
3,200 wild tigers left on earth. It is a shockingly low figure. Think of
it this way - every wild tiger on earth could stand on just one soccer
pitch! Getting that message out to people is vital if we are to save the
wild tiger. Paul McCartney has a huge following around the world. His
support will help us to reach out to people in ever greater numbers. We
are asking everyone, from every part of the world, from young to old to
add their signature to our cause at www.tigertime.info
The number of tigers left in the wild is frighteningly low.
There are only estimated to be 3,200. There are now more tigers
kept as pets in the USA than in the wild. Within a very few years,
the number of wild tigers will pass the 'point of no return' and they
will literally die out.
TigerTime was launched in May 2011 by the much loved and renowned
British wildlife artist and conservationist David Shepherd CBE.
When he was born 80 years ago, there were 100,000 wild tigers.
The aim of TigerTime is to be the largest community of people
dedicated to saving the wild tiger. Every signature at
www.tigertime.info makes our voice louder and stronger. Any monies
donated helps us to put the anti poaching patrols on the ground to stop
the killing. Wild tigers are being lost at the rate of
approximately 4 per week.
