This World Environment Day, Wildlife Trust of India (WTI) is pleased to announce that actor-Filmmaker and Champion of Nature, Dia Mirza, has formally joined the WTI team as its Brand Ambassador.
Dia Mirza, an ardent advocate for nature conservation in India, has consistently brought conservation issues before a wider, more mainstream audience. She has been the face of several pivotal environmental and humanitarian campaigns and was last year made an Ambassador for the Swachh Bharat Mission’s ‘Swachh Saathi’ program. Besides that, Dia Mirza is also the ambassador for Sanctuary Asia’s Tiger Conservation program, a member of the governing board of the Sanctuary Nature Foundation and was recently announced as the first Indian Ambassador for Save the Children.
Dia has lent her support to WTI’s wildlife conservation endeavours for several years now and is also a founder-member of the organisation’s Club Nature initiative. “I’m proud to be part of the team that’s securing India’s natural heritage”, Dia Mirza said. “I deeply admire WTI’s mission to conserve wildlife and its habitat and to work for the welfare of individual wild animals in partnership with communities and governments. In my role as Brand Ambassador, I look forward to launching and elevating the message of WTI’s next vital nationwide campaign, where we celebrate India’s mighty elephants through the GajYatra.”
“Over the past few years, Dia has been a constant and generous supporter of our work here at Wildlife Trust of India, and it gives me great pleasure to officially welcome her to the WTI family as a Brand Ambassador. Over the next few months we will be launching our mega campaign to celebrate elephants across the country, and having Dia on board as a social influencer would be an eminent addition to our team”, said Vivek Menon, Executive Director & CEO, Wildlife Trust of India.
Dia Mirza has surely won our hearts!
