Books make incredible gifts for children. As the winter holidays approach, RAN and Tiki The Tiger want to help you make sure rainforest paper isn’t part of the present.
Shockingly, many U.S. publishers have released at least one children’s book that tested positive for paper fiber linked to Indonesian rainforest destruction. With one of the highest rates of deforestation in the world, Indonesia‘s rainforests- and the communities and endangered wildlife that live there- are disappearing rapidly.
Print out the guide and pop it in your wallet. Share it with your friends via Facebook, Twitter and email. You can also join RAN and Tiki The Tiger for our national Roar At The Store week of action where hundreds across North America will hand out rainforest-safe guides in front of their favorite bookstore.
Thanks for helping to keep Indonesia’s rainforests off your shopping list this holiday season and beyond.
Sumatran tigers are now the smallest tiger species in existence, ever since their relatives, the Javan tigers, went extinct. There are currently less than 500 Sumatran tigers left in the wild and Tiki is their new super cute superhero spokestiger.
Please help Tiki save the tiny tigers!
Tiki’s home is in great danger. Every day, wood pulp and paper companies threaten the survival of these majestic felines by clear-cutting their precious rainforest habitat, draining wildlife rich (carbon-filled) peatlands, and turning these lands into plantations.
Tiki is calling on kids, parents, teachers, families and you to help him defend his rainforest home.
Before Sumatran tigers like Tiki become just another extinct species for the history books or a special “last remaining” exhibit at the zoo, we must stop destructive paper companies from tearing down Indonesia’s precious rainforests.
Stay tuned for upcoming actions in your community and GET READY TO ROAR!
