The Third Bengal Tiger Consultation, February 19-20, 2009, Kolkatta
“What did you do to try and save the tiger?” To our absolute shame, that is the question our children will surely ask if we allow the national animal to fade away. A group of strong-minded individuals and organisations is determined not to let the situation come to that. The Bengal Tiger Consultations are part of an initiative that seeks to unite all elements of Indian society behind the undertaking of saving the tiger. The Kolkata consultation will be attended by almost 100 participants across all sections of society including government officials, scientists, wildlife experts, lawyers, journalists, teachers, students and politicians. The consultation process is designed such that over 60 per cent of the time is allocated for free wheeling, moderated discussions between participants, which greatly enriches the outcome. This is the third of five planned tiger consultations being organised by Sanctuary Asia, in association with the Wildlife Conservation Trust (WCT) and the Bengal Tiger Bachao Campaign.
The consultation will be held at the Rotary Sadan in Kolkata.
