Sonia is well-known for her trademark spotted and striped animal prints, and her wardrobe is inspired by the big cats she loves. She is saddened these magnificent animals are on endangered species lists around the world, and keeps her eye on wildlife conservation groups that support wild cat conservation.
According to the World Wildlife Fund, there may only be 3,200 wild tigers left in the world, down from nearly 100,000 only a century ago. These beautiful animals are threatened by illegal poaching, a black-market demand for skins, and habitat loss.
Both the people and the wild animals that make up our planet need our support, our love, and our respect, and Sonia's vision extends beyond her local community. She wants her children, and – someday – her grandchildren to live in a world with wildlife diversity including her favourite, the tiger.
