Why should we save the Tiger?

Our 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.


How can I help conserve the environment and wildlife?

Since public opinion and awareness are two critical factors that will finally make a difference, here is an outline of some activities that you could consider.

  • Try to learn as much as possible about India’s wildlife (from books, the internet, seminars and talks), and about the importance of the ‘Web of Life’.
  • Get prople involved in your cause - in your colony, in your colleges and schools as well as your local MLAs.
  • Organise trips to local wildlife areas, or botanical gardens and the zoo.
  • Keep in touch with media people.
  • Keep in touch with Forest Department - often they need volunteers for some of their field activities.
  • Keep in touch with the Honorary Wildlife Warden and conservation NGOs in your area. Offer assistance wherever possible.
  • In day to day life, remember the six 'R's:
Refuse
Reduce
Re-use
Reinvent
Recycle (paper, plastic etc)
Replenish (water-harvesting, planting trees etc)


What can I do if you find somebody trading in live/dead wild animals or their body parts?
