The winners of the Extinct TV programme
The Projeto Arara Azul did not win, but it will share an amount of money with other projects
After a week of presentations for the eight animals nominated for the Extinct TV programme, the final episode was transmitted live this evening and the voting results from the viewers were announced. The Bengal Tiger came in first place followed closely by the Giant Panda and Mountain Gorilla. No surprises there! The tiger project will get half of the money donated to WWF through the programme and the remaining seven projects, including the Projeto Arara Azul, will share the remaining half equally. They have not yet announced how much has been donated, but it should be a substantial sum. I shall report this information as soon as it becomes known.
