  • Run wild for Tigers

    The Department of Forests and Park Services (DoFPS), Ministry of Agriculture and Forests in collaboration with the United Nation Environmental Program, adidas Runtastic, Internets of Elephants, and Bhutan Foundation will launch the RUN WILD for Tigers campaign from 25th September till 4th October 2020. It is an exciting digital running challenge that lets users run with a wild tiger in Bhutan being researched by the Bhutan Tiger Center. Using the freely downloadable adidas Running app, users will be able to track their runs and test their endurance against Tendrel Zam, a wild Royal Bengal Tiger in Bhutan.

    “We are very happy that tiger from Bhutan is part of this RUN WILD campaign. We will be reaching out to millions to raise awareness on tigers and tell our conservation success stories to the outside world. This was planned as of the commutative events for the 40th birth Anniversary of our king and would have loved to launch with a big celebration, but due to the COVID pandemic we are not able to do it” said Lobzang Dorji, Director of DoFPS.
