Quote: "Authorities across Asia are waging a major battle against poachers and other man-made problems such as destruction of the tigers’ habitat."
I hope the government remain this battle.

Well, good! I really think that India is trying hard to accomplish some good. There's something to be said about at least trying.

Like Gandhi said: "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated. I hold that the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man."
