Tiger fund’s thank you
Shetland Tiger Fund has received a thank you letter for its most recent donation of £1,000 towards wild tiger preservation.
The letter arrived at co-ordinator Jill Blackadder’s house on Wednesday – World Tiger Day.
It is the 18th time the tiger fund has made a £1,000 donation which goes towards protecting tigers and other endangered species in Kaziranga National Park, Assam, India. It also helps many other campaigns and projects through the Environmental Investigation Agency.
Mrs Blackadder said the first school tiger project began in 1995 and fund-raising started the following year. Plans are being made to hold a 20th-anniversary celebration.
