We are going through hard times, and it looks as if this crisis will take
months to subside. People are under lockdown and are seeking information
over the internet more frequently than ever. A lot of fake news regarding
the virus and the pandemic are circulating over the internet. At the same
time, many of our community members are at home, and they probably have
more time than usual to devote for volunteering. Is there any possibility
that we can run the Project Tiger writing contest once again, ideally,
starting next month? We could perhaps give more importance to articles
related to COVID-19 during the contest, but we could also work on other
topics of interest as well.
Just an idea - I would like to know what the community and CIS think about

Hope this email finds you well and safe. You are aware of the very
unfortunate coronavirus outbreak globally and in India. Earlier we informed
you that on-site/offline CIS-A2K events were postponed. In this email,
we will give you some more details about the Project Tiger 2.0 community
You know Project Tiger edit-a-thon has completed some time ago, and we
were supposed to work on organizing a community skill development workshop.
However, following WMF suggestion, recommendation by the central and
state government in India, and after a detailed discussion with Project
Tiger team, we want to inform that we can’t conduct Project Tiger workshop
due to the current circumstances, and we will be exploring a new date for
the workshop once life gets back to normal in India.
If you have questions, comments, or suggestions, please write to
tito+pt2020(a)cis-india.org or reply to the email.
Thanks for understanding and please stay safe.
