The Leave Me Alone campaign is supported by Dr. Alan Rabinowitz, one of the world's leading big cat experts. Dr. Rabinowitz served as the Executive Director of the Science and Exploration Division for the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) for almost 30 years, before becoming Chief Executive Officer of Panthera. Headquartered in New York City, Panthera's mission is to ensure the future of wild cats through scientific leadership and global conservation action. The organisation has brought together the world's leading wild cat experts to direct and implement effective conservation strategies for the world's largest and most endangered cats, including the tiger. Please find links to material about key Panthera leaders below Dr. Rabinowitz's statement of support.

Dr. Alan Rabinowitz, CEO of Panthera, the global wild cat conservation organisation, stated:

“Today, the tiger is facing nearly impossible odds in its fight for survival, assaulted by threats ranging from habitat loss and fragmentation, conflict with local communities, and outrageous levels of poaching for its highly lucrative body parts sold on the illegal wildlife market. India alone is home to nearly half of the fewer than 3,200 wild tigers that remain. This beautiful country and the conservation of its tigers is critical to the future of the species across Asia – a feat that can only be accomplished with the genuine investment of the people of India.

Sanctuary Asia’s Leave me Alone tiger conservation campaign is helping to make this goal a reality. It informs people how they can help reduce and remove the mounting pressures bearing down on tigers, allowing their populations to rebound, and inspiring coordinated, public action in support of the conservation of India’s prized national animal. This campaign serves as a battle cry for India’s people and government to act now, before it’s too late to protect tigers in India, and to give them the space and freedom in the wild to live forever. I am proud to stand with our partner Sanctuary Asia in support of this critical project.”
