A cross-continental drive spanning 25 countries to create awareness on tiger conservation will start from Saravanampatti on July 29.
This project, organised by Wild Tiger Foundation (WTF), will begin from CMS College of Science and Commerce. The drive will cover countries in Southeast and Central Asia (including Myanmar, Thailand, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan), Russia and Europe (including Hungary, Germany, Italy and France). Titled ‘The Roar Trip’, the project aims to cover the 25 countries in 65 days, according to its organisers.
The car involved in this project carries a number plate that reads ‘WTF 3900’, with 3,900 denoting the total number of wild tigers currently alive on Earth, the organisers said.
