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). 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

  • angela It is long overdue to protect the declining population of Tigers.Trophy hunting,fur hunting,trapping for export,entertainment must be STOPPED NOW.These majestic animals deserve to live Safely in their Natural habitats.

  • Carol Keith We must do all that is possible to save the remaining tigers in the wild.Between poaching,habitat destruction and killing for disgusting medicinal practices they have little chance.We must do everything we can for the Bengal as it is slowly losing the race with humans.
