Long time no posts... Sorry, was little busy with my work. I know what comes to your mind reading the previous line. Nothing can be done:) . If i post blogs regularly, then people jump into wrong conclusions that I am not working and always free. Anyways, this post is nothing to do with Britania Tiger but its about real Tigers. You want to know the reason for this title, you will come to know at the end of this post. I kept the name just to cover up more readers and try bringing awareness. You would have come across many sites, pictures, advertisements saying "SAVE TIGERS". I know what you all will think seeing those words. " What the heck is this? Save Tigers. Are we suppose to get tigers from the forest and bring them up as our pets? How can we save tigers? Bull shit.! " No harm. All dumb people like me think like this. Those who didnt, great minds -- Sorry to comment. Let me give you something interesting so that you will know how to do it.
CAUTION - PLEASE DON'T CLOSE IT READING THE FIRST PARAGRAPH. IF YOU ARE NOT READING IT FULLY BAD FORTUNE WILL FOLLOW YOU FOR TEN YEARS!!!!
The tiger, one of the most magnificent animals in the world, is also one of the most endangered. A symbol of strength, majesty. There are 8 varieties of species, of which three have become extinct within the last 60 years and there are less than 50 South China tigers left on this planet. There are five different kinds or subspecies of tiger alive in the world today. These tigers are called Siberian, South China, Indochinese, Bengal, and Sumatran. Reports and survey say only about 5,000 to 7,400 tigers are left in the wild. Three tiger subspecies, the Bali, Javan, and Caspian tigers have become extinct in the past 70 years.
I can give you a answer for why we have to save Tigers. Why Tigers, why not cat ? I will tell you why. First reason Tigers are endangered and not Cat. Secondly, if you don't want to be Tiger uncle's lunch, you need forest. Tigers can't live in places where trees have vanished and in turn you are safe and secure with all your basic needs in your presence. If we want the tigers to have immortality, then we have to pray for its prey. We have to save all herbivores which tiger feeds on. If we want the herbivores to have a long life then again we have to pray for its prey, Plants. Saving Tiger automatically saves herbivores, saves trees and saves forest. Saving Forests saves us.
I will just tell you how you can help in saving Tiger as an Individual.
--> Usage and sale of Big Cat's products are banned. So, say NO to them and if you find carnivores(human) hunting Big Cat report at Local Police Station or Forest Officials.
--> Create awareness regarding Tiger. Make posters, pamplets, if you are crazy enough go to the top of the building and shout like this " PLEASE SAVE OUR TIGERS". Pass on the message as much as you can.
--> The best you can do and everyone may do this atleast after reading this post is by sitting before your stupid computer clicking a button, joining the cause in facebook, orkut, twitter and other communities and organizations which is involved in this.
--> I can give you some organization names so that you can fund them. WWF, World Wide Fund For Nature and The Corbett Foundation. You have loads of money and don't know what to buy your girl friend don't worry, give it to them and they will take care.
--> You think you can bring up the change, you think that you have the skills and commitment, do contact NGO working for tiger conservation to volunteer them.
--> Destroying your house is similar to destroying forest. Lets preserve the habitat of Cat Beauty by reducing the raw materials we steal from forests. Lets avoid unnecessary usage of paper, wood, etc.,
--> Educate the local people living near the forests about the importance of tigers in terms of ecosystem. They need to be told that if there will be no tigers there will be no forests.
--> Have an eco tour. So that you will come to know the importance of Tigers and You can also support various accredited zoos and wildlife sanctuaries which are active in research and conservation programmes.
The above mentioned points are very common and you can try to do them being an individual. Please take this as an serious issue and try to save them. Let's give a big ROAR now.. Come on... ROOOAAAAR...... Good shout.. If we are not ready to save our Tigers, then we will see only their photos in the cover of Britania Tiger Biscuits. So do save TIGER.Information Sources:
