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

    Es ist unsere Pflicht die Tiere zu respektieren und zu beschützen. Tiere, sind Lebewesen! Dessen, sind Sie sich bewusst? Auch sie haben ein Anrecht auf ein würdevolles Leben auf diesem Planeten! Sie sind Menschen, dann handeln Sie menschlich und zügig. Nehmen, Sie Ihre Verantwortung, bitte. Traurig, dass man Petionen unterschreiben muss. Dies, sollte selbstverständlich sein. Merci.

    A tiger, with its beautiful coat, is a fearsome predator. Huge, powerful, crushing teeth, even loving to swim and catching fish, makes it an able predator.
    Yet, out of either poaching or safety-reasons, Tigers have been killed unrelentingly and is in great danger of being extinct. Living in bustling settlements, it poses a danger to humans and is shot at sight because of safety.
    Due to the tight space between Tigers and humans, Tigers are responsible for killing about 300 of the latter per year.
    It is important to save them because it will come back to bite us.

    Tigers are some of the most vital and beloved animals on Earth.
    Poaching is the most immediate threat to wild Tigers.
