By the turn of this century the habitat and hence the population of Tigers has reduced almost 95%. In India we had over forty thousand tigers in the beginning of the 20th century. There is a long history of poaching for tiger skin trade, but today the demand is for its bones and other organs for Chinese pseudo-medicinal purposes, with weak law enforcement for the criminals. The growing population has added another bigger burden on its survival and that is loss of habitat. These are the two major issues the big cat faces for its survival... Inbreeding, Impact of Catastrophes, deforestation add to more... The big cat is surviving it all...but for how long? Can we let go this magnificent creature in grain of sands forever? Please join the cause, not just to create the awareness but also come up with possible practical solutions for saving the tiger from extinction.

By the turn of this century the habitat and hence the population of Tigers has reduced almost 95%. In India we had over forty thousand tigers in the beginning of the 20th century.
There is a long history of poaching for tiger skin trade, but today the demand is for its bones and other organs for Chinese pseudo-medicinal purposes, with weak law enforcement for the criminals.

The growing population has added another bigger burden on its survival and that is loss of habitat. These are the two major issues the big cat faces for its survival... Inbreeding, Impact of Catastrophes, deforestation add to more...

The big cat is surviving it all...but for how long?

Can we let go this magnificent creature in grain of sands forever?

Please join the cause, not just to create the awareness but also come up with possible practical solutions for saving the tiger from extinction.

Best regards,
Divya
