Description:

Once, there were 8 subspecies of tiger, now only 5 subspecies remain, in India, Sumatra, China and several other countries; around 7% of their historical range. Approximately 5000 of these magnificent animals survive in the wild, making their future incredibly bleak if action is not taken soon. 

Reasons for these low numbers include poaching for skins and Traditional Chinese Medicine, fragmentation of their habitat and shooting by farmers for attacks on livestock. Conflicts between humans and tigers have occured due to their close proximity - with deforestation for development of agriculture and timber industry, tigers have to survive on whatever prey they can find.

Tigers bring tourists to less developed areas of it's range, making it's prescence beneficial for inhabitants of such countries. The tiger is a flagship species for conservation, and if we cannot save such a charismatic and beautiful animal, little hope remains for other, less recognised species. Please, pledge to save this species, the most bewitching of big cats, and defy those who believe the tiger will be extinct by 2010

We must do all we can to save these magnificent animals. It would be unforgivable for us to allow them to become extinct in the wild.
Worried about humans lost? the world's population is expected to reach 9 billion in 2040. Are only 3000 Tigers. HOW CAN WE STOP THAT???
how would YOU like to be hunted down, maybe you should be extinct.
we need to do what ever it takes to make sure they see a future too *kate
Love Tigers.
please save the Tigers
I can't live without the tigers in this world. Please help to save them!
save the tigers please one solution is to allow people to breed them and raise them of course it would have to come with certain laws like if you live in an apt you cant do this...dah. but for people that own land and have the room to raise them maybe the government could give a fund started to help people financially breed and raise them.
We def need to put a stop to the suffereing of these animals and all others that are hunted for there fur ect. We live in a cruel world with only some that have hearts and that want to help the animals and save them from vanishing forever!
What an atrocity!! These poor innocent souls---people are evil! Every time I hear about animal suffering - I am so ashamed to be part of the human race!! | www.KindnessNotCruelty.org | www.VeggieGuide.co.nr
this was always a problem...

This breaks my heart. I did not know only 5000 exist. We need to make sanctuarys in all countries where at least some of them should be safe.Most governments only think of what resources to waste. Not what we are doing to the planet and it's creatures.

pls save the pride of our nation as wehave already lost it to a gr8 extent in the name of urbanisation n developement
which is infact ruining the real essance of the culture n beauty of INDIA.we dont need to fight for it
as its already ours we juss need to wrk for it :)

The tiger is a top predator which means that if they die so does other species. We are really the only ones that can stop their extinction. Please help them!
Kind regards from

The Tiger is at the apec of the food chain in rain forests. Saving the tigers mean saving an entire eco-sphere. Save the tiger, everything takes care of itself.

I feel India should create conservation areas for the tigers well being so farmers and poachers will stop the slaughter of these beautiful animals.

The Tigers should be cared for.The loss of these extraordinary animals would be a great tragedy.

i worked at the bronx zoo for a few years. These animals are really something to watch. they are so warm to their young and protective. they deserve to live in peace.

Tigers are beautiful and should never be killed for any reason! Save the tiger!

Spreading of education & sever punishment for not only poaching but even the slightest damage to our jungles is the only way left out to save tigers

to keep your nation's pride,
SAVE THE TIGER

WE WILL SAVE THE TIGERS!

i love cats but we have to be careful to see them even though we shouldent kill them if you leave them alone they will leave you alone but i believe i should vote/signature save the tigers!

I love the big cats I always dreamed of wanting a tiger cub or a lion cub for my pet. I think they are beautiful animals and they should not be kill there habitat is being destroyed as well. by ridiculous people would they like to be killed the way they kill of the animal kingdom. So lets get of our back sides and keep our wild animals safe and no more blood killing.

Tigers are our pride. All Indians should unite & vote for this campaign.
