Hyderabad: As many as 12 girl students from Telangana were part of #missionsavetigers, a three-day education tour, at Ranthambore Tiger Reserve in Rajasthan.

The tour, which was organised by Apollo Foundation in association with WWF-India, aimed at recognising the need to extend awareness-building exercises in youth on preservation of tigers in the country.

As part of the mission, medical camps and medical assistance are provided to the forest officials stationed at tiger reserves across the country, according to a press release.

The WWF’s mission is to stop the degradation of the earth’s natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, by conserving the world’s biological diversity, ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable, and promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption, the release said.

Speaking on the occasion, vice chairperson of CSR at Apollo Hospitals Group Upasana Kamineni said the Apollo was committed to the well-being of the precious wildlife and stand strong with WWF-India in conserving tiger population.

“Through such partnerships, we extend our medical support and with our recent initiatives to conduct awareness – building activities for different sections of society, we aim to create more awareness about the tiger, a symbol of beauty and resilience,” she said.
