The Year Of The Tiger Calls For Saving Them From Extinction
Saving Tigers From Extinction
Okay. This hub comes straight from my heart.
The Year of the Tiger is coming - Feb. 14, 2010 rolls in the Chinese New Year, and this year the Tiger is the ruling animal. This majestic creature symbolizes strength, courage, bravery, boldness, graciousness, and also power which can be dangerous if misused.
Unfortunately this is not good news for tigers.
With the Year of the Tiger there is an even higher demand for tiger parts on the black market and in Asia, as people have it in their heads that killing an animal so you can have part of it as a trophy somehow brings luck or longevity or some other reward for inhumane selfishness.
Sorry, I guess I'm a little passionate about this subject.
The sad truth is that there are more tigers living in captivity in Florida than there are in the wild in India.
And that just makes me want to cry.
Poaching is one of the biggest threats, as is habitat loss. Tigers and other big cats are predators that play incredibly important roles. Nature needs these beautiful animals to keep the balance of life.
Though honestly I think there shouldn't have to be a reason to preserve animals such as these - they should just be granted their birthright to life on the planet. Really, living in the wild is difficult enough without having to worry about poachers.
We are truly in danger of losing wild tigers to extinction. To me, this is not acceptable.
Here's what you can do:
- Go to Big Cat Rescue and find out what you can do to help.
- Educate others about the very real threat to tigers, and encourage them to do just one thing to take action. This can be through Big Cat Rescue or World Wildlife Fund, to name just two.
- Share this hub to raise awareness for the tigers.
Raise awareness and save Tigers!
