The campaign aims to give you more information on the plight of wild tigers, rhinos, elephants and orangutans and how people can help save them from extinction.
Tigers, rhinos, elephants and orangutans are truly magnificent animals and they are a much-loved part of our biodiversity on this planet. Numbers of many populations of these species have reduced significantly over recent years and there is now a real threat of extinction.
All four species are increasingly hunted and killed for illegal wildlife products and their natural habitats are being destroyed at an alarming rate. Internationally, the demand for traditional Asian medicines, which use parts of tigers, rhinos and elephants, is skyrocketing.
'If They’re Gone...' was launched on 4 March 2013. The aim is to raise awareness of the crisis situation for these animals, and get people to do something that could make a difference.
Using the combined expertise and resources of all of the partners, the campaign hopes to make a real difference and contribution towards ensuring these animals do not become extinct, because if they’re gone, they’re gone forever.
There are many ways of getting involved in the campaign and we would like to hear from anyone who wants to find out more.
