MUMBAI: Leading Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma has joined hands with Discovery to promote a global awareness movement to save tigers from extinction. Anushka will promote Project C.A.T: Conserving Acres for Tigers, aimed at raising awareness to preserve the habitat of the declining numbers of the wild tiger. Discovery has collaborated with World Wildlife Fund (WWF) for Project C.A.T.

Anushka having consistently championed the cause of animal welfare is well poised to front this social service campaign on Tiger conservation. Anushka who was recognized as PETA’s person of the year 2017 has recently announced her dream project of building an animal shelter.

“Tigers - the glorious wild cats are in real danger of getting extinct and they need our help. As a large predator, tigers are an umbrella specie and play a critical role in ensuring that the delicate ecological balance in the wild is maintained,” said, Anushka Sharma. “The current situation is a sad reflection of us as human beings. All of us need to reflect how we can contribute to make the world a better place to live and ensure that our future generations too can experience this magnificent creature. I just cannot fathom this world without them.”

“More humane than you think, you could say, almost human, like us,” signs off Anushka in the powerful video. Promo Link- https://youtu.be/0QBWCl6qn2g

“Tigers are a revered specie and is disturbing to know that their population has shrunk 96% over the last century and only as few as 3900 are left in the wild across the world,” said, Karan Bajaj, Senior Vice President & General Manager - South Asia, Discovery Communications India. “We are excited to partner with Anushka Sharma to ignite awareness about tiger conservation and help promote the global movement to save them. We will use the collective power of our media brands to amplify the message of Tiger conservation.”

As part of the WWF partnership launched in 2016, Discovery’s Project C.A.T. program funds nearly two million acres of protected habitat in India and Bhutan to protect and increase the wild tiger population. This year Discovery has further increased the ambit of Project C.A.T by extending support to WWF for Tiger conservation initiatives in Sundarbans forest located in the coastal region of Bay of Bengal.

Animal Planet channel from the house of Discovery has always been at the forefront of promoting conservation of wild animals. The channel recently showcased the Second Season of Mission Big Cat – An anthology of shows dedicated to Big Cats. The programming, which included world-class series like Big Cat Legacy, Jaguar Super Cats, Vanishing Kings II, Extinct or Alive, Queen Of The Hunt and Brazil Super Cats, showcased the largest feline predator at their majestic best.
