Students enact a street play on the theme during the event.

Saving an endangered species caught up in the mire of the man-animal conflict was the focus of the Tiger Fest, an awareness programme held by Care Earth Trust on February 18 on the premises of Kumararani Meena Muthiah MHSS, Adyar. The event had students from 20 city schools sketch out their blueprints for conserving the habitat of tigers. Setting the stage for animated discussions on the natural world, volunteers from Care Earth illustrated with visual presentations the link between loss of natural habitat, water scarcity and extinction of tigers, to the enthusiastic students.  Adding to the excitement was a series of fun-filled competitions, including a colourful face painting contest on the theme ‘Wildlife of India’ and lively street plays on environment conservation.

The thought-provoking event had budding naturalists speak up for nature in an engaging elocution contest while little maestros at their innovative best, strung together percussion instruments from recyclable junk ranging from earthen pots, old plates to wooden boxes.

The festival was part of an ongoing programme called ‘Kids for Tigers’ being implemented for Care Earth for Sanctuary Asia in Chennai.
