Auburn University, Clemson University and the University of Missouri
are partnering with the World Wildlife Fund to raise money to aid
worldwide tiger preservation.
The three universities share a common mascot – a tiger – and will
compete to see which school can raise the most money and boost
awareness of tiger farming and illegal trade in tiger parts.
Through Dec. 13 next year, students, faculty and alumni from all
three schools can donate in their schools’ name to a special Web site
created by WWF for the “Tigers for Tigers Challenge” at
Visitors to the program site can view donation amounts from
supporters of each school. As part of the program, participating
universities will help raise awareness of the challenge to their
extensive community of alumni, students, staff and faculty.
