Actress Anushka Sharma has joined hands with Discovery to promote a global awareness movement to save tigers from extinction.

Anushka Sharma will promote Project C.A.T: Conserving Acres for Tigers, aimed at raising awareness to preserve the habitat of the declining numbers of tigers in the wild.

Discovery has collaborated with World Wildlife Fund (WWF) for Project C.A.T, a statement said.

Anushka, who has consistently championed the cause of animal welfare and was recognised as PETA’s person of the year 2017, features in a video.

She says, “Tigers – the glorious wild cats are in real danger of getting extinct and they need our help.

“As a large predator, tigers are an umbrella species and play a critical role in ensuring that the delicate ecological balance in the wild is maintained. The current situation is a sad reflection of us as human beings.”
