The exclusive dinner was sponsored by Sir David Tang and co-hosted
by TV presenter Stephen Fry. Over sixty guests attended the private dinner to show
“We must all fight against
the cruelties of the trading of animal parts. We must also rescue certain
beautiful animals such as the South China Tigers. All because we want to live
in a more civilized and kinder world-and for our children to do so”, said Sir
David Tang. “I am sponsoring the dinner to raise money in order to maximize the
awareness and education on these two vital environmental issues.”
We were extremely honoured to receive a speech from The Prince of
Wales who kindly had it delivered during
the dinner and the transcript of which can be found below this news.
Li Quan, a founding director of China Tiger Revival says, “I have
been engaged in tiger conservation for fourteen years and I am very proud that
the tiger rewilding and reintroduction model I set out to experiment over ten years ago has now been
considered a viable option to supplement wild tiger populations. I am extremely grateful
to Sir David Tang for his continued support for our work to encourage China in her
endeavour to protect nature, biodiversity and save endangered wildlife. We are
so honored to have Sir Stephen Fry’s endorsement for the work of our new
Ian Penman, Chairman of China Tiger Revival says, “I have been to China many
times and nature protection is a big issue there. We want to engage and
collaborate with China
to protect as well as restore nature that has been compromised”.
China Tiger Revival is a group of charities based in UK and Australia. The mission of the
charity is to save tigers and other endangered species through awareness
building and education, as well as restoring and protecting their habitat in China
and elsewhere in the world.
We aim to support China’s
effort to re-establish wild tiger populations and other endangered species in
their historical range.
We emphasize the importance of co-existence between humans and
wildlife and promote conservation in China so that wildlife
conservation becomes sustainable by engaging local communities who can benefit
from tiger conservation long-term.
