PETA supporter Tiger Shroff calls on government to shift focus towards protecting tigers in their natural homes.
Like father, like son. Jackie Shroff is known as an ambassador for PETA, and now his son, Tiger, is too! The actor, who plays a superhero in Balaji Motion Pictures’ upcoming film A Flying Jatt, is taking his character seriously in real life by being a superhero for animals. On International Tiger Day (29 July), Tiger sent a letter on behalf of PETA to Environment Minister Anil Dave urging him to ensure that government focus is on protecting tigers in their natural homes.
In his letter, Tiger writes,
I know environmental issues are important to you, as they are to me. I join my friends at PETA in hoping that under your leadership, we will see the government focus its conservation efforts toward protecting India’s remaining forests and bringing in additional measures to safeguard tigers and other animals in our precious jungles
Tiger, who had previously sponsored a female tiger in a zoo, points out that the place where tigers really need protection is in their natural homes, where they have ample space to roam and can spend time with their families and engage in other natural behaviour.
You Can Help Too!
