WWF-India: “save the tiger”

At the turn of the 20th century, according to sources, India had an estimated 40,000 tigers in the wild. In 2002, based on pug mark census, this number was 3,642. As per the monitoring exercise by Wildlife Institute of India in association with National Tiger Conservation Authority (NTCA), Government of India using camera traps, in 2008 we were left with only 1,411 tigers. This number is so small that they will be gone soon if we don’t wake up to the crisis.

The Objectives Are :

  • Protect, restore corridors to ensure connectivity between tiger habitats while ensuring that human-tiger conflicts are reduced.

  • Reduce pressures on the tiger habitats by promoting alternative livelihoods for local communities in and around tiger habitats.

  • Create incentives for local communities as well as state and regional government and opinion-makers to support tiger conservation.

  • Enhance capacities of the Forest Department to control poaching of tigers and prey species.

  • Provide policy inputs at state and central levels to ensure effective measures for conservation of tigers and their habitats.

  • Promote the political will as well as popular support within all sectors of society for tiger conservation.

  3. We grown up liestening to the stories of mightiest tiger.
    We wanted to become as strong as tigers, but today, they itself are in the stage of extinction. Please save tiger. Let it inspire our children also…..<3 @-}–

  4. white tigers are a detrimental genetic mutation and not natural. when disreputable breeders breed for white tiger they often end up with other mutations as well such as clef lips, crossed eyes or blind or crippling hip and joint issues. These tigers when not euthanized live a painful life lacking in quality. White tigers should not be promoted because they actually are a detriment to the genetic strength of the species (and sub species) and are only bred by greedy people who are looking to turn a quick buck. any reputable conservation organization would never breed white tigers or condone organizations that do.
