"The Meluha of the Jungles - I'm the One Horned Rhino”

A clay modelling workshop with children. In support of the Oxford Bookstore’s drive to spread awareness about the cause of conservation of the one-horned rhino.

Venue: Apeejay LawnsTime: 10.00 am - 01.00 pm Partner: WWF-India (World Wide Fund for Nature)

Oxford Bookstores and WWF – India Conservation Partnership

Assam is home to the endangered Asian One-Horned Rhino. Only about 2700 rhinos survive in India today. Oxford Bookstores and WWF-India Conservation Partnership aims towards raising funds, raising public consciousness and sharing responsibility towards one horned rhino conservation in India’s North Eastern state of Assam. Oxford Bookstores and WWF-India Partnership seeks to enroll customers of Oxford Bookstores and Cha Bar in the cause of conservation.

From Teas of Oxford Bookstores’ sister company Apeejay Tea Group’s Assam Plantations, sold in the hip Cha Bar, contributions in 8 cities will be set aside, and donation matched by Oxford Bookstores to fund the WWF India’s One Horned Rhino conservation project.

Customers of Oxford Bookstores in 11 cities across the country can also directly but voluntarily support the Give Back To Nature programme of WWF-India. Every time you buy a book at the store, you will contribute towards supporting the Wild Wisdom quiz programme. The Wild Wisdom quiz is India’s only national level quiz to sensitize and generate awareness among children by fostering a sense of competition, pride and knowledge of Indian biodiversity.

The anchor to this new collaboration is Oxford Bookstores’ newest and most architecturally crafted retail store in New Delhi that opened on April 2nd 2013. Conservation Saturdays, a once- a – month program -, with topics as broad as possible, inviting people of all age groups, businesses of all types and sizes, as well as individuals, to participate will be hosted at Oxford Bookstore Connaught Place.

As a value addition to the collaboration, WWF-India conservation products will also be available at the WWF-India Green Corner at the Oxford Bookstore, Connaught Place.

We request you all to join our cause. You can find out more about the One-Horned Rhino and how you can support the cause by visiting the links placed alongside on the right (Related Links). To partner with us or donate to the cause or to have your children participate in the AKLF Program of Jan 11th please write to us at : oxfordmail@apeejaygroup.com

Programme subject to change.All information correct at the time of updating (Jan 3rd 2014 - 10.44 AM).

* We deeply regret that all passes for the AKLF Inaugural Event are now exhausted, and have been distributed on a first come-first served basis. However, we warmly welcome you to all other AKLF events, which are free, open to all and do not require passes. See you there!-
