Kids for tigers -- Needs Volunteers

Kids for Tigers' is a Sanctuary environmental education programme in schools across India that aims to bring out the vital connection between the survival of the tiger and our ecological health.

Through 'edutainment' workshops, tiger fests, nature walks, film shows and tiger information kits, 'Kids for Tigers' seeks to increase awareness among children about India's biodiversity and sensitise them to the fact that saving tigers and their forests will also secure our water supply and help save ourselves.

Here is your chance to help in this noble initiative. Here is an email that I received in one of my Wildlife newsgroups :

"Kids for Tigers is a nature education programme run by Sanctuary Asia and Heinz India Ltd. We work in 10 cities and close to 400 schools all over India. Wildventures used to run the programme in chennai for the last two years. I am moving out of chennai and will need a group or an individual to run this programme across the city. My experience with the programme has been fantastic and we met close to 35000 children last year . We work in 40 schools in Chennai.
