British Curry Club restaurants offer support to Save the Bengal Tiger

Save the Bengal Tiger Week is launching on 23rd April, with restaurants nationwide, backing this vital campaign to help Save the Bengal tiger from extinction.

During Save The Bengal Tiger Week, the British Curry Club has more than 500 Bangladeshi and Indian restaurants across the UK providing a three-course meal for £20, with a portion of the proceeds going to the good cause.

Mike Ahmed of the British Curry Club said: “We are proud to have so many British Curry Club members participating in this crucial campaign to fundraise to protect and save the Bengal tiger. These beautiful creatures are under great threat and we appreciate the involvement of so many of our restaurants to help with this worthy cause.”

During the week events will take place nationwide across the UK to help raise awareness of the campaign and the plight of the Bengal tigers.

The Sundarbans, the world’s largest mangrove forest straddling Bangladesh and India, is home to the last stronghold of tigers on the sub-continent and indeed the world. While other tiger populations dwindle to as few as 30 tigers – the Sundarbans has miraculously survived.

2012 is a critical year for the Sundarbans Tiger Project (STP) – the only dedicated tiger conservation project working in the Bangladesh Sundarbans – and funds are urgently needed to help stop tiger poaching in the region, stop the unsustainable use of the forest and to help save the Royal Bengal Tiger for generations to come.
