Andy Murray and Kevin Spacey team up to protect tigers
Il tennista britannico e l’attore statunitense hanno lanciato un appello per sostenere la campagna del Wwf per la tutela delle tigri.
A tennis champion, a famous actor and a charismatic yet threatened species. Tennis player Andy Murray and actor Kevin Spacey launched a video, shot at Wimbledon’s Centre Court, to support WWF’s ambitious campaign Tx2, aimed at doubling tiger numbers in the wild by 2022.
Tigers are endangered
Tiger populations dropped by 95 per cent over the last century due to relentless poaching, habitat loss and animals-humans conflicts. “It’s shocking to think that there are fewer than 4,000 tigers left in the wild,” Spacey said. “That’s less than a third of the number of seats at Centre Court. But whilst their situation is precarious, I have learnt from Andy that there is hope. We really can help tiger numbers recover. It’s a challenge that I’m proud to be part of drawing attention to.”
A glimmer of hope
Despite figures are appalling, for the first time in history tiger numbers are increasing with 700 individuals more than 2010. “We are at a turning point and we must seize this opportunity”.
The campaign’s official hashtag is #DoubleTigers. People can also support the campaign by donating 5 pounds to WWF by texting “tiger” to 70123.
