|Frequently Asked Questions
Why should we save the Tiger?
survival is dependent on the natural environment as it provides us with
clean air, food and water. Tigers are at the apex of the food pyramid
and are indicators of a healthy environment. The ‘Web of Life’: all
things in nature, including humans, are interrelated - changing any
component of the web will impact others. In saving the tiger we are
protecting the entire ecosystem and all its inhabitants.
It is imperative that we safeguard ‘umbrella’ species like the tiger as this is directly linked to our own future.
