Gyalwang Karmapa Gives Talk on the Preservation of Wildlife

June 29, 2009 – TCV, Dharamsala

His Holiness The 17th Gyalwang Karmapa gave a talk on the preservation of wildlife to the upper TCV (Tibetan Children’s Village School) students on Monday, June 29th. The talk was an awareness event co-organized by Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) and Care for the Wild International (CWI).

“Animals are not our enemies. We are all interdependent. Every animal has a role to play in the ecology by being a part of the food chain. If you remove one layer, the entire chain is affected. Even while talking in the interest of human beings, by saving wildlife, you are ultimately helping yourself,” His Holiness said.

The event was part of the Tibetan Conservation Awareness Campaign (TCAC), a WTI-CWI project aimed at spreading conservation awareness among Tibetans. The campaign was launched by His Holiness the Dalai Lama on April 6, 2005 to address the involvement of Tibetans in wildlife crimes and the use of wildlife articles in Tibetan medicines and traditional dresses.
