AUCTION

Over the years, the tiger - India’s national animal has been on a rapid decline and if necessary steps aren’t taken to conserve them, they will soon be extinct. Being an environment friendly person, Dia Mirza is on the frontlines of India's tiger protection efforts and is supporting the ‘Leave Me Alone’ campaign which aims at saving tigers. Not only is she promoting the campaign on all her social platforms, she has also donated some of her personal items for an auction that will raise money for the campaign. ‘Leave Me Alone’ is a joint initiative of Sanctuary Asia and Save the Tiger that emphasizes this vital reality: saving India’s tigers calms the climate and helps secure our future. If tigers vanish, so will their forests, leaving us with runaway climate change. With space, isolation and protection, the tiger and its forests will thrive. The campaign urges people to echo the tiger’s plea to ‘Leave Me Alone’, sign the petition, rally or spread the word.

Dia thinks that the tiger represents all that is powerful and worthy about India and stands as a metaphor for its entire natural legacy. It has the power to unite everybody behind the existent task of reviving the many ecosystems and environments that have been unthinkingly spoiled in the process of chasing economic ambitions. This time Dia around, has decided to auction a dress that she will be wearing for her wedding and the proceedings of which will go to one of the tiger defender’s who support the Leave Me Alone campaign to save the tiger.
