First postcards for tiger rangers arrive in Indonesia! Is one of them yours?
The cards, addressed to ranger Rusli Siregar and his colleagues at the Rimbang Baling Wildlife Reserve, arrived on 7 August at the WWF Indonesia office in Jakarta.
One card came all the way from the US from Ms. Erin Poor while the other was sent from Jakarta and signed simply "Nobi" with a heartfelt message thanking the rangers for their bravery and dedication in protecting the Sumatran tigers. Both were responding to WWF's call for people to tell tiger rangers they care by sending them a postcard, under the Cards4tigers initiative.
Due to uncertainty in postal services to remote, outlying areas such as Rimbang Baling, WWF Indonesia has taken to collecting the postcards on the rangers' behalf. All postcards received will be collected and handed over to the rangers when WWF staff visit the wildlife reserve. We will keep senders informed when the cards are in the rangers' hands.
