Rarely have I been more pooped than by the weekend…with WWF the team worked relentlessly to achieve what should have been an impossible task, that of sculpting a life sized tiger in a very short space of time indeed and with the weather far from certain. But where there is a will there is a way. I could never thank enough the team of volunteers who gave so willingly so much time to mix plaster and generally run around and provide for me… the sculpture belongs to them!
We were also assisted by schools and scouts… who under the wonderful guidance of a prime assistant Mia not only helped with the rock but also produced endless tiger footprints.
The aim was to demonstrate to people that the tiger is under threat… hence I started with bones, the deadness of the tiger. In the space of a week we wanted to breath life back into those bones and even to bring on the next generation. This was well achieved. I would hope the messaging get out that against adversity we can turn a dire situation around.
Join WWF and my team to help save the Tiger and its environment in the same spirit that we are continuing to highlight the plight of the Polar Bear and its Arctic home.
