Rewilding Yu By Tina Salleh Communications Officer, MYCAT Our launch of the Rewilding Yu reforestation project on Global Tiger Day, July 29th, was a surreal experience. We had planned this day – and even had nightmares about the all the things that could possibly go wrong – for so long, that it did not feel real to me until the guests started to arrive.

Tigers on #WorldTeachersDay

Sending lots of respect to all the teachers on #worldteachersday! EDUCATION We are frequently approached by Schools and Colleges to talk about wild tigers and conservation.

They have used tigers as their cross curricular topic for the Autumn Term. Activity 1  (Fun welcome back to school) The children returned to school to find their classrooms had been vandalised and that bones had been scattered throughout. Initial...
