What's the story?
Award-winning wildlife photographer, guide and Exodus stalwart, Paul Goldstein, is embarking on an extraordinary journey: Running the Brighton marathon on Sunday 15th April, hoping to summit Africa’s highest peak, Kilimanjaro (5895m), on Thursday 19th April, and then 'running' the London marathon on Sunday 22nd - all of which he will be doing in a 9ft tall tiger costume...and yes you did read that correctly... all in one week!
Bengal Tigers matter to Exodus and particularly to Exodus’ resident wildlife photographer Paul Goldstein, who has spent many hours watching and photographing them in the wild. Each year hundreds of wildlife enthusiasts travel to India hoping for a glimpse of this magnificent predator. Tigers are teetering on the edge of extinction in the wild, but are holding in Bandhavgarh at 59. Despite their desperately low numbers and concerted efforts to protect them, they are still suffering at the hands of man.
In mid-April Paul Goldstein will be running the Brighton Marathon, then flying to Tanzania with Exodus’ Head of Product, Jim Eite, with his tiger suit in tow to guide a trek on Kilimanjaro. Then running the London Marathon on his return. All in the name of raising money and awareness for the plight of the Bengal tiger.
