Aircel Save Our Tigers

Aircel, one of India’s largest mobile service providers, has joined the fight to save India’s Royal Bengal tiger population from extinction. In partnership with Dentsu Communications and WWF India, Aircel has initiated a ‘Save Our Tigers’ project to get the public behind the protection of the country’s national animal. The tiger population has dropped to a current total of 1,411 in comparison to 40,000 tigers a hundred years ago. Aircel is using print, outdoor, online, radio and television advertising encouraging people to not only make donations but join the movement and spread the news. The campaign is centred on the website www.saveourtigers.com as well as on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

The Save Our Tigers campaign portrays the world as it’s seen through the eyes of a six-months old tiger cub named Stripey by Dentsu Communications. In the campaign’s video Stripey is shown to be waiting for his mother that will never return, probably killed by poachers. Like any child, he’s lost, and hungry. The story of the cub provides a different angle on the poaching problem and provides a connection to the horrifying statistic that there are 1,411 tigers left in India. The commercial ends with a listing of some of the things people can do to help the Save Our Tigers cause.

    We must save our tigers just not because that they are our national animals but also because such a wonderful and beautiful species of cat’s family are in danger .
    The poachers are hunting them regularly in spite of banning of their hunting . Therefore we must raise our voice and save them.
