Save our Tigers

Tiger is India's national animal. But sadly it is becoming endangered because, it is poached for its body parts to cater to an illegal market. Another reason is habitat loss due to depletion of forest cover due to interference of humans and encroachment of forest land by people causing fragmentation. Famous Bengal tiger is already declared as endangered species.

By conserving and saving tigers the entire wilderness of ecosystem is conserved. Conserving wilderness is important and crucial to maintain the life support system. Today approximately 1400 tigers are surviving in India. There are several Tiger Reserves in India but man's greed even crosses those boundaries. Please join Save our Tiger initiative.


Above snap of tiger is taken at Bannerghatta National Park. This park is at a distance of around 21 kms from Bangalore city.

The big cat has expended a lot of energy in his quest for food and securing his territory. A well deserved rest in the cooling shade is sin order!

TY for thinking of these animals. His gorgeous. Looks that it's too hot overthere.

Have a happy heart.

Saving and conserving wildlife has never been more important than it is now. When a species is lost its gone forever and mankind is poorer for its disappearance.

Nice snap you have here of a beautiful beast!

These are such wonderful creatures and it would be a tragedy if they were to become extinct. It is so sad that we are destroying our world - or at least some greedy entrepreneurs are so doing.

Rajesh: That is a majestic animal, it is too bad when the habitat is threatened.

thyme said...

Sad to think that like the brown bear and the wolf in Europe the tiger in India is about to disappear from the wildlife.

bobbie said...

Yes, please save the beautiful tigers. Wonderful picture.

I fear, our posterity might not be able to see this Godly wonder!

For, its, Tiger Tiger burning bright!

Awareness is necessary for conservation but it should be just aim. Poaching do happen in connivance of the local population because they are not compensated for their habitat loss...read mine on this one

The Bengal tiger is such a beautiful, fascinating creature! When we admire this tiger so much, I wonder how it is we can let it be endangered! Great post!

Autumn Belle @ KDP said...

Tigers are such magnificient creatures. I hope that in this Year of the Tiger more people will be aware of their plight and help to save them from extinction.

Reader Wil said...

Excellent post! Tigers are among the most beautiful creatures in our world. We have little wildlife left in our crowded small country. We still have deer and boar, but no wolves anymore.
Thanks for your visit!

These are magnificent cats and it is a shame that human greed is so destructive! Let's hope that, as has been done with other species, we can halt this travesty and bring them back full strength!

JOE TODD said...

Beautiful animal.. Save the habitat save the animal. Every little bit helps.Thanks for the post

The Survivor said...

Simply love the big cats

I am not sure how the save the tiger imitative is going to make a difference unless the problem of poaching is solved.

Creating awareness in urban cities is not going to make a difference unless the forest is protected from poachers and sellers.

Abe Lincoln said...

I do hope and pray the tiger can be saved in India and everywhere else in the world.

Müge said...

I'm sad to learn that tigers have become endangered in India. I hope they will be saved and protected in the futur.

The tiger is a magnifecent animal. We will all be poorer if it cannot be saved.

LadyFi said...

Such majestic creatures and so terrible that they are going extinct due to human greed.

Deepak Acharya said...

this is a very bad. Despite several efforts, the number of tigers in the country are gradually decreasing.

Bhavesh Chhatbar said...

Amazing photo of this amazing animal. But sad that media is just spreading the word instead of actually taking any action. We all can discuss, but how many of us have taken at least an initiative?
