India Launches “Leave me Alone” Campaign to Save Indian Tigers

Activist groups and Indian wildlife officials kick-started a new campaign “Leave me Alone” to save the tigers. Despite efforts to conserve the national animal, numbers in India have dwindled due to rampant poaching reportedly for their valuable pelts and body parts that are highly prized in traditional Chinese medicine.

The campaign provides information to the public how the tiger plays a crucial role in protecting forests and the need for a clean and stable environment for the beasts. The campaign’s name “Leave me alone” highlights the scientific reality that if left alone, tigers will thrive.

Bollywood actress Dia Mirza and Sahil Sangha, Director and Producer of Born Free Entertainment also supported the campaign. “The tiger represents all that is powerful and good about India. It is a metaphor for our entire natural heritage and it has the power to unite us behind the survival task of resurrecting the many natural ecosystems that have been unthinkingly damaged in the process of chasing economic ambitions. We urge each individual to join the “Leave me alone” campaign and make a difference”, they said in the release.
