Scots bid to aid lost tribes.
Fiona Watson and Miriam Ross are helping spearhead a campaign by Survival International.
Four tribes are on their endangered list including the Jarawa from the Andaman Islands in the Indian Ocean.
Miriam, 26, of Edinburgh said: "The Jarawa are under threat from poachers and a forest road that runs through their reserve.
"They are treated as a novelty and tourists gawk at them. They have fled deeper into the forest and only recently stopped shooting arrows at visitors to scare them away."
Miriam and Fiona, 43, will campaign to raise support for the threatened tribes.
