London: ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ star Joanna Lumley is lending her support to a tiger charity to protect the species from extinction.
Lumley, who is an avid animal rights campaigner, is joining actors including Ricky Gervais, Sir Roger Moore and Susan Sarandon by voicing her support for TigerTime.
"Animals share the earth with us - that is to say, they are equal partners in the right to live on this plane. In our anxiety to make the world a better place for ourselves, let us be very careful that we don`t obliterate the needs of other species," a website quoted the 65-year-old as saying.
"If the tiger disappears from the wild because of our behaviour, we humans shall have lost all claims to be called civilised and compassionate. The greatest enemy is indifference. Please join TigerTime right now to help to save the lives and habitat of these magnificent creatures. This is extremely urgent. The clock is ticking: real time is running out," she added.
