Story

Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. I am running the Great South Run on the 26th October.

I've seen first hand how hard scientists in the Russian Far East are working to save the last remaining Amur tigers and witnessed three orphaned cubs been captured and rehabilitated after their mother was killed by poachers. They have now been released back into the wild but need our help to have a fighting chance of surviving in the face of great threats. 

Please show you care by giving whatever you can - every little helps! WCS Europe will make sure the money gets to the WCS scientists in the Russian Far East, to pay for the supplies and equipment they need to work in such harsh conditions and monitor and protect our released tigers and the 350 remaining Amur tigers of the Russian Far East. 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and secure, as are your details - they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity. 

Thank you very, very much!
