Wild Tigers: The Time to Act Is Now!

Tigers are in trouble. The largest of the world's cats, a species that's existed for two million years, is slipping away before our eyes. Few realize that just 3,000 tigers remain in the wild.

So many species are being slaughtered, losing habitats for selfish and greedy humans. Tigers are so beautiful and what a terrible thing to lose them forever.

Too many humans. Stop breeding like animals, people!

As villagers push deep into tiger territory, there’s inevitable conflict. Tigers – especially elderly cats or mothers with cubs – sometimes kill a cow, buffalo or other livestock. When they do, villagers often retaliate. At least animals kill only to survive- not for the fun of it.

This is yet another reason to donate to the WWF. Without them, I can't imagine what the tiger stats would be.

Any one poaching and killing these cats should be placed in front of a firing squad immediately! Noted.

So few are left. Tiger bone wine? Now I have heard of almost everything? Try dandelion wine, it has the word lion in it, another big cat and one doesn't have to endanger either lions or tigers to drink it.

I was watching a show and the narrator said that there are only two species that cause wars because of their aggression: Man and Fire Ants. Good to know that we are as low and cruel as ants. No wonder no other species has a chance with us. People stop breeding and start allowing other living beings to live.

Its really sad news to know that only 3,000 Tigers remain in the wild.

That's the point, time to act is not now, is past! It's ridiculous to continue to speak about and the tigers continue to be killed!!!!

Tragic!!!!! Firstly, their habitat needs to be saved, since that would prevent them from seeking people's habitats and farms. But as long as we are spreading all over the world, there will be negative encounters with wild animals. We need to limit ourselves!
Thanks Cher

Noted. In the words of renowned field biologist George Schaller, “I learned long ago that conservation has no victories. It’s a never-ending process that each of us must take part in.”

We still have time. Where there’s life, there’s hope. But the time to act is now. Once the last tigers disappear, no longer gliding on velvet paws through the jungle, we cannot bring them back.
Thanks Cher.
