With their striking orange and dark striped coats, tigers are among the most recognizable and beloved animals on the planet. They are also among the most at-risk. Tiger numbers have been on the decline for the past century.

So sad and something needs to be drastically done to protect this beautiful animal. Not enough is being done for tigers or any animal.

Thanks for posting sweetie.

It is all so sad and infuriating. How do you fight a government that profits from big cat hunting and poaching? How do you fund enough park rangers so that they can fight organized crime syndicates and fund wildlife refuges and sanctuaries to protect these incredibly beautiful animals? How do you get enough people to even care? It always comes back to money, and in this case, Chinese traditions and beliefs? Thanks for Chering.

How tragic, with so little natural habitat left for tigers I don't know if it would even be possible to turn their numbers around even if we could stop the poaching of this animal. The only good news about this is how many tigers are alive in captivity and how easily and successfully tiger can and have been breed in captivity. This at least leaves hope to release captive tiger back into the wild which combined with conservation efforts could help turn their numbers around.

There are so many animals being massacred for money that it tears your heart up. Pictures seem to be the most awesome thing to have to show how great you are. What is happening is awful and I send Karma to whoever kills for fun.

Unfortunately humans only worry about how much money they can make in the short term. They are not worried about how their children, grandchildren will fare, After all the animals are gone, then what? All we can do is try to educate and boycott those that do not listen.
