Cycle Ride to raise awareness about plight of Tigers

Cycle Ride to raise awareness about plight of Tigers

There is to be a cycle ride from Bandhavgarh N.P to Kanha N.P on November 29 -December 1st 2008. The ride will be to raise Local / Global awareness about the plight of the Tiger.

There will be the founder of Tiger Awareness, Phil Davis taking part from the UK, Mahadev Lal, retired Indian Railway worker, also hoping to have members of local charity “Vunraksha” joining in at various stages.
There will be 3 days cycling.

The cycle ride will start from Tala in Madhya Pradesh, going onto Shahpura, the following day onto Mandla and then on the final day onto Kanha N.P. There will be stops at some local schools on the journey to give talks and leaflets on how and why we must help the Tiger.

The Tiger numbers in India are at around 1500. This number is extremley low and all help is needed to help the big cat.
