Act Now to Save India\'s Tigers

6,919 Signatures Goal: 1,000

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). All over India, key tiger areas are being destroyed for industrial concerns at the whim of politicians seeking to line their own pockets. The direct result is a country that loses an average of one tiger a day from its dwindling population to illegal poaching for trade, irreplaceable habitat loss and continuing prey decline. By destroying the tigers\' habitat, you are also destroying the environment that local people depend on for food and water. The tiger is a symbol of the overall health of India, its environment and its people. It

    If this continues it will eventually spread to other animals until we have lost them all and can no longer bring them back. That is not a world I can bare to live in.

    I am an animal lover and an avid lover of large cats. Tigers are such magnanimous creatures that do not deserve to be hunted for their furs, they should be appreciated for their beauty and virility. They should be left alone to live their lives and we should live ours from a distance without causing them or detrimenting their habitats even further. We should be rebuilding them to carry on the chain for our children's children to see what amazing creatures continue to inhabit this earth.
