Tigers in Distress! Will You Help?

If Tigers are to survive in the wild, they need massive human intervention!


Our Friend John Vaillant, author of The Tiger asked me, Gracey The Tiniest Tiger to help spread the word about this very important initiative to save our Big Cat cousins, the Tigers.

Wild tigers   are   on the verge of becoming extinct in the wild. And that means gone forever.

In the past 100 years, 97 percent of the world’s wild tiger population has been wiped out, largely due to poaching, prey depletion, and habitat destruction. Worse yet, there are only 1,000 breeding females left.

It’s hard to imagine a future without the tiger. But there’s something we can do right now to prevent that from happening.

The Global Conservation Act of 2010, now under consideration in Congress, would be a major step in combating wildlife poaching and environmental destruction. The bill’s passage would also send a powerful message to world leaders, who will be gathering at the Global Tiger Initiative Summit this fall to negotiate a plan to prevent tiger extinction.

Write to your lawmakers now and urge your representatives in Congress to co-sponsor this bill. Just click the link below:
