How to Save the Tiger Population in India & Tiger Conservation

Updated on July 2, 2015

Save the Indian Tiger Population

The news is hard to miss: the Indian tiger is in grave danger. As of 2014, there were only 2,226 tigers left in the country. If we do not take drastic measures to save them, there is a possibility our kids will never grow to see an Indian tiger in real life.

We must raise awareness of how to protect this majestic cat. Here are a few of the ways you can help save them:

Source

1. Create Awareness

The Indian tiger is in danger, and only extensive awareness programs can save the species. Everybody can help if they do their part. You can help as well. All you have to do is make posters or flyers illustrating the significance of tigers on the planet Earth.

2. Educate the People

The people who do the most harm to the forests are those living near them. They need to be educated about the tiger's significant role in a balanced eco-system. If there are no tigers, then we will not find any grass on our planet because all the there will nobody to stop the grass eating animals from eating all the grass.

3. Discourage Poaching

Hunting of tigers is banned because selling tiger skin or any other body parts is the biggest reason why indian tigers are going extinct. If you know somebody who is involved in indian tiger hunting then it is your duty to report the officials.

4. Support a Cause

If you see a program running to save the indian tiger, you should take part in it and support their cause. You could also start your own blog on how to save the indian tiger, it will really educate the people.

5. Take an Eco-Tour

If you really want to save the indian tigers then an eco tour is must for you. Eco tour really helps the people in understanding the significance of tigers.

These are some of the simplest ways you can adopt to save the Indian tiger from becoming extinct.

Conservation through Project Tiger

In 1972, Project Tiger was founded to bring conservation plans into action. The organization's primary aim is to protect Bengal tigers living in several regions of India. To do so, they set up several tiger reserves in order to preserve the natural environment of the regions where tigers dwelled the most.

For several years, representatives of the tiger reserves covered the area of nearly 37,761 kmĀ² and were able to bring the tiger population from 1,200 in the 1970s to 3,500 in the 1990s. However, when the Government of India did a survey in 2008, the tiger population was estimated to have fallen to 1,411. This was announced as a major setback. To rectify the shortcomings of Project Tiger's conservation activities, the government requested for a donation of US $153 million.

Some areas the fund will strengthen include:

  • A high-tech information network is needed by Project Tiger's wildlife protection and crime risk management team to deliver maximum protection to the fields where tigers live. The main portion of the fund will be allocated to develop technologies that would help the representatives gather, maintain, and properly use the data. The technologies will also allow the project to watch over the tiger conservation areas through mapping and GIS modeling.
  • The activities of some of the units, such as the Sunderbans Tiger Conservation Unit, Central Indian Tiger Conservation Unit, and Western Ghat Tiger Conservation Unit, will be strictly monitored. These are the areas where tiger population has reduced rapidly. A satellite data will be set, which will keep an eye on the tiger habitats.
  • Further activities for tiger conservation will include educating the villagers on tiger conservation, so they also help in saving the almost extinct species.

The Project Tiger is hopeful that with proper use of the funds and more international help, they will be able to save the tigers in the coming years.

      These are some pretty good to save the tiger population in India. There has been an increase in the tiger population in recent times, but there is still a lot of work to be done to increase their numbers even more. Poaching and cutting down of jungles still remain the prime concerns. This man, who is suffering from cerebral palsy, is doing his bit in discouraging poachers. He is helping the government implement their conservation programmes, and even runs several workshops to educate, empower and equip forest guards with a better understanding of tigers.

      The price of human greed is being paid yet another animal species the TIGER. Today the tiger population is getting depleted at an alarming rate. According to a recent survey, one tiger is being poached everyday. If the present rate of affairs is allowed to continue, i think that the next generation will not get to see the majestic animal even in the zoo.

      It is high time that action is taken to protect and conserve the tigers in order to maintain the ecological balance.

      Tiger is an endangered animal and an indicator of our ecosystem's health.

      Saving the Tigers means we save the forest too.

      So pls

      I think we should educate the people who are living in forest region or on the side of natural parks or sanctuary. First of all govt. should rehabitat this people from the park to diff. sites where these people can get water and basic needs, but nothing happens and we know the job of govt. employees.

      The place were i stay is vasai(w)in thane dist. which is the most beautiful part. but now concrete industries are taking place. I hope after 1 or 2 years it will extend to the forest area's which one's were very beautiful and some people had seen the tiger in these place called (tungareshwar mountain) but nobody is interested in this. Neither the local's who manufacture bricks and govt. offices. who give the permission to put the fire and use wood or to make liquor in forest.
