Students at the LNCT University made a figure of tiger through natural arts. At the same time, students informed about their artwork and said that many countries are campaigning for the protection of tigers still, environmentalists believe that if there is such a drop in their number then by the year 2022 the Tigers will extinct. The students made a lot of efforts in researching about Tigers and then creating artwork to bring people’s attention towards saving the Tigers from extinction.
On the occasion of celebrating the World Tiger Day, LNCT University’s Director Mr. Anupam Chouksey said “On 29th July, this day was first celebrated in 2010 and was founded at an international summit that had been called in response to the shocking news that 97% of all wild tigers had disappeared in the last century, with only around 3,000 left alive. Tigers are on the brink of extinction and World Tiger Day aims to bring attention to this fact and try to halt their decline. Many factors have caused their numbers to fall, including habitat loss, climate change, hunting and poaching and Tiger Day aims to protect and expand their habitats and raise awareness of the need for conservation.”
