Legendary actor Dick Van Dyke is joining other celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Sophia Bush, Ethan Suplee, and Jared Leto in supporting the World Wildlife Fund’s new tiger conservation campaign.

“Who would have thought that I might outlive one of the most majestic species to ever walk the planet,” stated Van Dyke. “When I learned that tigers, which numbered close to 80,000 when I was born in the 1920’s, were closing in on extinction, I was stunned.”

The 84-year-old is promoting WWF’s “Texting for Tigers” initiative which encourages people to text ‘TIGERS’ to 20222 to make a $10 donation to the cause. “It’s amazing — just a few years ago we had to pull out the checkbook and mail off a check to donate money,” stated Van Dyke. “It couldn’t get any simpler.”

With only 3,200 tigers left in the wild, WWF is racing against the clock to raise millions in an effort to support local initiatives aimed at stopping poaching, preserving habitat, and increasing population numbers.To find our more, visit their official site here — and take a look at Van Dyke’s PSA below.
