Restaurants join forces for ‘Save the Bengal Tiger’ campaign
Michelin chef Dev Biswal backing campaign
MORE than 500 Indian restaurants across the UK are helping to Save the Bengal Tiger in a national campaign that is kicking off with Save the Bengal Tiger Week.
The campaign which kicks off on 14 May marks the first time so many Indian restaurants have joined forces in this way for an entire week to support a charity.
The 500 members of the British Curry Club are letting curry lovers nationwide have the pick of a special Tiger Week curry menu at some of the UK’s finest curry establishments. Top celebrities Indian chef’s are also on board to pledge their support during the Week.
Mike Ahmed of the British Curry Club said: “We are calling on the nation’s army of curry lovers to support Save the Bengal Tiger Week by visiting restaurants in their local area and beyond. What’s more the special tiger menu that’s on offer has been especially tailored to cater for the UK taste buds and features the top ten curry dishes as voted by the British public in Chaat magazine.”
During the week, events will take place nationwide to help raise awareness of the campaign and the plight of the Bengal tigers. 
The Sundarbans, the world’s largest mangrove forest straddling Bangladesh and India, is home to the last stronghold of tigers on the sub-continent and indeed the world.
While other tiger populations dwindle to as few as 30 tigers - the Sundarbans has miraculously survived. 2012 is a critical year for the Sundarbans Tiger Project (STP) – the only dedicated tiger conservation project working in the Bangladesh Sundarbans – and funds are urgently needed to help stop tiger poaching in the region, stop the unsustainable use of the forest and to help save the Royal Bengal Tiger for generations to come.
And one Chef backing the campaign is top Michelin chef Dev Biswal.
Dev, executive chef of award winning restaurants the Ambrette, based in Margate and Rye, said: “I wholeheartedly support Save the Tiger Week and the Save the Bengal Tiger campaign. I grew up in Bengal and the beautiful Bengal tiger is an animal that absolutely fascinates me. As a young boy I went to see this forest officer who was nurturing and bringing up an orphaned white tiger (the mother had been killed by poachers) and have very vivid memories of this majestic but gentle beast. I wish the Week every success in helping to fundraise to help save the Bengal tiger.”
