ENDangered:India has less than 2,000 tigers left.

BANGALORE: On Saturday, some 150 schoolchildren will hold a rally in front of the Mahatma Gandhi statue to support the initiative to save tigers. Kids for Tigers, a tiger conservation awareness programme run by Sanctuary Asia, along with the Save our Tigers' campaign, is organising the rally at 8.30 a.m.

With the country's tiger population plummeting to less than 2,000, India can hardly afford to be complacent about the status of its endangered big cats, and Kids for Tigers will campaign to create awareness on this critical issue.

This should go hand-in-hand with forest and water conservation, campaigners emphasise. Since the launch of the Sanctuary Tiger environmental education programme for schoolchildren 10 years ago, Kids for Tigers has organised a number of activities with other organisations.
