Start Enforcing Laws to Protect Tigers

This petition had 8,895 supporters


Tigers are in need of urgent attention with only about 3,000 tigers left in the wilderness. The population of tigers dropping from 100,000 to 3,000 in only 2 decades is not something to overlook. Tigers live within the 13 tiger-range countries of Bangladesh, Bhutan, China, India, Nepal, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Russia. Out of the 9 subspecies of tigers, 3 of them are already completely extinct. It is estimated that all tigers may be extinct by the year 2020. It is devastating to see these majestic creatures go extinct because of poaching and habitat loss due to human greed. Due to deforestation tigers have lost over 97% of their territory.

On April 14, 2016 the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction hosted the 3rd Asia Ministerial Conference on Tiger Conservation and pledge to double the number of wild tigers by 2022 - the next Chinese year of the tiger. This goal was called Tx2.

We urge the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction to make every effort to stronger enforce laws that will help abolish poaching and deforestation in these habitats and provide more funding and help to active wildlife conservation groups that are out there protecting tigers relentlessly everyday.
