THIS AIN’T NO LOCKET FROM GRANDMA BUT RATHER A BOLD, BEAUTIFUL WAY TO CALL TO ARMS.
Haute couture collars that, by design, reference tracking collars that are fitted to wild tigers. Tracking gear for wildlife is helping save animals in peril. The Tracking of the Species collars will be engraved with a number corresponding to a tiger currently being tracked.
Working with the Midwestern Regional Director of World Wildlife Fund, DeKeyser conceived of the project. The aim is to raise the issue and generate funds to help protect and save these majestic animals from extinction.
A tiger fitted with a GPS tracking collar can be accurately located every half-hour. This can help scientist gain a better understanding of tiger ecology and how tigers are adapting to their ever-changing environments.
Animal tracking collars have already proven successful in effectively and swiftly catching poachers who trap, kill and sell tigers. Today, poaching is the number one reason that tiger populations are dying. Funding is desperately needed to help stop these rampant killings.
