We have so many species of endangered animals we need to do anything possible to insuere their surviel. These Tigers need more room to survive. If our animals do not survive neither will humans.

Put the army in these reserves to protect the tigers. Make it a death sentence to anyone who is caught with a tiger part. Let people decide if it's worth their lived to kill a tiger or any other animal.

Noted! These beautiful and rare tigers need land to survive and they need more staff to protect them from ruthless poachers! The govt. also needs to increase the buffer zones around the periphery of these reserves to avoid conflict with villagers because the poor tigers and wildlife always end up paying the price with being sent to zoos! Mankind needs to drastically reduce his own numbers and realize that wildlife needs space and land too! We've taken all their land what do we expect them to do? Why can't the human population limit its numbers? Then we would increase the odds of survival- not only for the animal but for ourselves too as there are just too many people!

The number of people on earth needs to decrease and there has to be people free zones, otherwise, the wild life will disappear! Thanks Cher
