Tigers Can Still be Saved (VIDEO)

Tigers Can Still be Saved (VIDEO)

This video from the World Wildlife Fund tells us that there are currently less than 4,000 tigers left in the wild. But they don’t need to be doomed for extinction. 

We need to stop the sale of tiger parts in Asia, thus cutting down on poaching. And we need to find ways to connect small tiger reserves, so they have a larger area in which to roam and thrive. 

If we can do these things, natural breeding can double the tiger population in just over a decade.

This is a very sad story. Other animals has to go only because "we" humans do not want to share the world with other life forms, these life forms "we" would not eat (vegetarian food is not a bad idea, or eating with conscience as the so called primitive cultures did and still do, if they still exist. No meat/fish every day). "We" destroy averything around us and "we" forget, that everything is important to survive, too.

As little child i thought that rain is when God and the angels cry - because "we" humans have forgotten that we need this "intelligence", someone who could help... if "we" hadn't turned away for many centuries ago...

"Only when the last tree has been cut down; Only when the last river has been poisoned; Only when the last fish has been caught; Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten."
(Native American proverb)

"We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea like fish, but we have not yet learned the simple art of living together as brothers." (Martin Luther King)

Humans are the ones who have caused their populations to drop so low, not nature. It is not their time to become extinct, they must be saved! I hope it isn't too late.
