BANGALORE: Eighty moods of the Royal Bengal tiger: closely watching its prey, sharing meat, huddled in a group with cubs.

To create awareness on the dwindling population of tigers, a photograph exhibition – “Vanishing Stripes” – will be held at Venkatappa Art Gallery, Kasturba Road on July 26.

H V Praveen Kumar, a wildlife photographer and nature lover, shot the photographs to be displayed, over a period of nine years. The array captures different moods of the big cat.

Praveen said the idea is to spread awareness on conservation of tigers. “The tiger is a symbol of India’s natural heritage. Other than the Taj Mahal, it is probably this beautiful, striped cat which attracts hundreds of tourists,” he said.

Prakriti Creations, an organization that works for wildlife conservation, will hold various activities during the exhibition, including a signature campaign. Films will be screened in the evenings.

Various contests like painting, quiz and essay writing will be held for school children.

The exhibition will be on till August 3. Films will be screened from 10 am to 6 pm on July 27 and August 3. An inter-school contest on wildlife will be held at Bal Bhavan on August 1 and 2.
