The State of Tigers Q&A with Panthera’s Vice President, Andrea Heydlauff

Panthera

Join Panthera’s Vice President, Andrea Heydlauff, for a Q&A session on the state of tigers at New York City’s Rubin Museum of Art next Wednesday, August 15th, following the film screening of ‘Monsoon: India's God of Life’.

Ms. Heydlauff will share information and answer questions on the state of the world’s remaining 3,200 wild tigers, the threats facing the species, and the critical conservation work Panthera is carrying out through the Tigers Forever program across Asia to ensure tigers live on in the wild, forever.

The screening of ‘Monsoon: India’s God of Life’ will begin at 1pm and is organized as part of the Rubin Museum of Art’s ‘Lunch Matters’ film series.

‘Monsoon: India’s God of Life’ is a fascinating chronicle of how the wild animals of India cope with the hardship of summer, and how the arrival of the monsoon transforms their lives and the land they live in. In India's far north east, the rare Indian rhinoceros lives on a flood plain that swings between the extremes of having too little water, or too much. Tigers lie in pools of water, waiting for the rain that will offer them salvation from the heat. However, although the monsoon often acts as a great benefactor, it can sometimes overwhelm with its abundance, unleashing floods that cause death and destruction.
