Joining the Earth Brigade Foundation’s effort to help avert water crisis in wildlife sanctuaries, actor Raveena Tandon Thadani extended her support to Dr Sarita Subramaniam and Dr PV Subramaniam by sharing wildlife photographs from her private collection alongside the works of 75 wildlife photographers in the exhibition titled, H2PHOTO in Mumbai. The proceeds from the sale will go towards installing solar pump sets at wildlife sanctuaries to help revive depleting watering holes.
Say Dr Sarita Subramaniam and Dr PV Subramaniam who have earlier raised funds to provide solar powered pumps to borewells that supply water to the watering holes at Karnataka’s Bandipur Tiger Reserve, “Summer brings with it a dearth of natural watering holes that dry up. The animals stray into human habitat or die of dehydration. Hence, the forest department creates artificial watering holes that need to be filled. The sanctuaries, however, are so large and pose a challenge when it comes to replenishing all of them. As the animals in the forests have their water woes, we are seeking a simpler solar solution.”
The inauguration ceremony on 25th May was graced by Dr Sarita Subramaniam, Dr PV Subramaniam, Raveena Tandon, Gracy Singh, philanthropist Dr Aneel Murarka, Vastu and Numerologist Basannt R Rasiwasia, Kavitta Verma, Abha Singh, Poonam Soni among many others. The exhibition will be on at Jehangir Art Gallery till 29th May.
Beautiful actress Raveena Tandon Thadani said, “Wildlife is my passion and capturing moments on camera is sheer thrill. The excitement and love for the forest and to conserve what we have on our beautiful planet with it’s beautiful creatures, which man is slowly destroying, is what draws me to suppport and take up initiatives like Project Aquarius.”
