Act Now to Save India\'s Tigers

The Bengal tiger of India is one of just 5 remaining species of tiger in the world today. Their populations are declining at an alarming rate and are threatened with imminent extinction in the wild. These declines have continued despite the tiger being listed on Appendix I of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).

What about the ecosystem? The climate? The animals? The very air we breathe and water we drink?


  • Tyra They're some of the most beautiful creatures on the planet. I don't think I could live with myself knowing that I was a part of the generation that let them go extinct.
