shahrukh khan will be seen in a wildlife conservation awareness campaign shortly. Sanskara Development Trust, along with the Asian Conservation Awareness Programme (ACAP) / WildAid, will launch a national educational awareness campaign on wildlife conservation. The campaign is a multi-media education and awareness campaign that aims to protect the future of the world's endangered wildlife by drastically reducing consumer demand for endangered species parts and products.
With the support of the Indian Broadcasting Foundation (IBF), the campaign will run on leading television networks like Doordarshan, National Geographic, Discovery/Animal Planet, CNN IBN, NDTV, India TV, among others. The Airports Authority of India (AAI), Ministry of Civil Aviation, and Parliamentarians in India have also supported the campaign that will start with the broadcast of superstar shahrukh khan's message across all international and domestic airports.
Shahrukh highlights the challenges faced by forest guards in protecting India's wildlife in his message, "......... he is our nation's unsung hero - the Indian Forest Guard. He is a real life hero because he does this to save the jungle, and the animals that live there. ....... Day in and day out, he is matching wits&battling powerful enemies - wildlife poachers&timber smugglers, and he is willing to lay down his life for this".
"We hope that the momentum of this powerful and unique campaign will help compliment India's ongoing efforts to save its remaining wildlife and its threatened habitats." - Aneetaa (Tykee) Malhotra , Managing Trustee, Sanskara Development Trust&Senior Consultant, ACAP / WildAid
"With continuous and sustained support from Indian celebrities and by working in collaboration with the Indian Government, associations such as the AAI, media, businesses, conservationists and the public, ACAP in collaboration with Sanskara is building long term support for India's as well as the world's wildlife and natural heritage."- Steve Trent, Director of ACAP and founding Director of WildAid
