Jaime Winstone and All Saints star Mel Blatt open up about shared passion for tiger conservation.
Actress Jaime Winstone and All Saints star Mel Blatt have spoken about their passion for tiger conservation in their bid to save the endangered animals. Inviting HELLO! to join them on a train trip on the Eastern & Oriental Express from Bangkok through Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, Jaime said she was shocked by the rapid decline in the number of tigers in the world.
There are now only 3,900 tigers living in the wild globally, compared to more than 100,000 in the early 20th century. If no action is taken, they could be extinct within a decade. “It’s very daunting. It’s in your face and it hits home more when you see it with your own eyes,” says Jaime, mum to three-year-old Raymond with her partner James Suckling. “The thought of my son growing up and asking: ‘What’s a tiger, Mummy, do they just live in zoos?’ is really depressing.
