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.

    If the money goes direct to the Indian national park containjng the tigers this is a far better way to donate than giving to WWF who would spend the money on climate change campaigns and who opposed an international ban on the export of polar bear products.

    One can only speculate as to why they opposed the ban, maybe they decided there were plenty of polar bears? Surely, the suggestion by cynics that they didn’t want to lose their global warming ‘poster child’ cash cow because it might come off the endangered species list can’t be true?
