3 Simple Things You Can Do to Help Save Wild Tigers

The tiger (Panthera tigris)  is the world’s most favorite animal according to a survey carried out by Animal Planet. This poll of more than 50,000 people in 73 countries chose the tiger, the world’s largest and most threatened with extinction of the big cats.  When asked to explain the overwhelming appeal of the tiger, Dr. Candy d’Sa, an animal behaviorist, said: “We can relate to the tiger, as it is fierce and commanding o the outside, but noble and discerning on the inside.”

The tiger’s win was greeted with hope by conservationists because if people are choosing the tiger as their favorite animal, they surely  will do what is needed to ensure their survival.  But the tiger has vanished from 93% of their historic range.  And down from 100,000 wild tigers 100 years ago to fewer than 3,200 remain in the wild today. Will we do what is needed to endure the tiger’s survival?  Here are 3 simple tings you can do to help save wild tigers.
