Paul McCartney is the latest celebrity to support TigerTime, a charity that aims to save the last 3,200 wild tigers on earth.
The Beatles legend joins a list of celebrity supporters that includes Joanna Lumley, Ricky Gervais, Roger Moore, Michael Parkinson, Melanie C, Anjelica Huston, Susan Sarandon, Gemma Atkinson, Vicki Roberts, Simon King, Naomie Harris, Neil Gaiman, Claire King, Abi Titmuss, Elizabeth Emanuel and Paula Abdul.
TigerTime was established by the renowned British wildlife artist and conservationist David Shepherd CBE on his 80th birthday in May of this year.
“Losing the wild tiger would be unforgivable,” says McCartney. “We need people power to save it! Please get behind this fabulous initiative. Whatever you do, wherever you live, your voice matters! Every signature makes the campaign stronger.”
“The vast majority of people are shocked to the core when they hear that there are only 3,200 wild tigers left on earth,” adds David Shepherd. "It is a shockingly low figure. Think of it this way – every wild tiger on earth could stand on just one soccer pitch! Getting that message out to people is vital if we are to save the wild tiger.
“Paul McCartney has a huge following around the world. His support will help us to reach out to people in ever greater numbers. We are asking everyone, from every part of the world, from young to old to add their signature to our cause.”
