Conserve Tigers and Save their Habitat

    1. Petition by

      Global Tiger Forum

With over 100,000 tigers in the wild, a hundred years ago, we are left with as few as 3,200 today. The tigers once roamed the earth freely throughout Asia in the 1900s. Of the nine subspecies of tigers; P.t.tigris; p.t.altaica; p.t. amoyensis; p.t.corbetti; p.t.sumatrae; p.t.jacksonii; , the p.t. sondaica, p.t. virgata and p.t. Balica are already extinct.

The Tigers in the wild signifies, healthy livelihood, protects the genetic diversity, and is the guardian and an indicator of a healthy forests. The tiger is at the top of the food chain. Therefore, the healthy presence of tiger population indicates healthy forests. The presence of tigers helps maintain the population of herbivores like Deers, Wild Buffaloes, Antelopes and Omnivores like Boars in the jungle. Nature is thus balanced with the right proportion of predators for prey. By taking away one important predator, prey will increase at the cost of habitat which finally impacts mankind.

Tiger is an umbrella species. It’s conservation automatically ensures the conversation of a large number of flora and fauna and entire ecosystems.

The tiger becomes the symbol for the protection of all species and is therefore called as an apex predator, an indicator of our ecosystem's health.

      Tigers and other big cats are close to extinction. Some big cats already are not extinct. This is barbaric to hunt them to this point, we should be preserving what we have left and protect them for future generations

      "Life is life's greatest gift. Guard the life of another creature as you would your own because it is your own. On life's scale of values, the smallest is no less precious to the creature who owns it than the largest."

      -- Lloyd Biggle Jr.

      I don't hold animals superior or even equal to humans. The whole case for behaving decently to animals rests on the fact that we are the superior species. We are the species uniquely capable of imagination, rationality, and moral choice - and that is precisely why we are under an obligation to recognize and respect the rights of animals.

      "Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages."

      Tigers are such beautiful creatures, they should be conserved and their habitat safeguarded for future generations to wonder at.

      They deserve to be able to live without fear the same as any living being.
