We are proud to tell you we support the following charities
World Wildlife Fund
With only 3,200 wild tigers left in the world, we adopted Malu Pothi, a female Bengal tiger living in Suklaphanta Wildlife Reserve, Nepal. However, WWF has not been able to track her within the reserve for a few months now, and so believe she might have found a new habitat, a common occurrence with tigers! Whilst out of sight but of course not out of mind, we now have the opportunity to ‘follow’ Kamrita who now has a daughter Ranu. They share the same territory and researchers have found lots of tell-tale signs confirming their presence, including pugmarks (paw prints).
The tiger has roamed the forests and grasslands of Asia for a million years or more and over the centuries it has been revered as a symbol of potency, beauty, wealth and health. And that’s the problem. In recent times it’s been the victim of a devastating level of poaching for its skin and body parts in traditional Asian medicine. If you want to have your say, then why not sign the WWF’s petition urging world leaders to take action to save tigers.
ZSL Whipsnade Zoo
We donate funds to support the tiger conservation breeding and reintroduction programme and sponsor Mickail, a Siberian tiger at the zoo. The BAT team had the opportunity of meeting the real Mickail close up at feeding time – okay there was a wire safety cage between us, but we were so close that we could have, in theory, touched him! Mickail is an awesome tiger, who definitely is the boss, but likes to play, show off, and get attention whenever he can.
The Prince’s Trust
Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training. Youth unemployment costs the UK economy £10 million a day in lost productivity, while youth crime costs £1 billion every year. The Prince’s Trust addresses this by giving practical and financial support to the young people who need it most.
Paula Lain is a voluntary business and progression mentor with The Prince’s Trust, helping young people develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling them to move into work, education or training.
