Q.

I strongly feel for and support the cause of saving our tigers. Here are a few lines from a poem penned by me:

Growling, scared and hungry,
It strains its eyes waiting to see......
A glimpse of its mom walking back to the den,
Having thankfully escaped the fatal clutches of men"

Your views????

I do share with you as they are nature's gift to man kind.
Since the start of the last century, the Earths tiger population has decreased ninety percent. I am writing this post thinking of how it is now the traditional year of the tiger in the Chinese New Year calander. Sadly, the South China tiger is functionally extinct. While hunting was banned in 1979, that was at a time when less than a hundred South China tigers remained in the wild. Other sub-species of tigers have gone extinct in the last century as well.

For more than a million years, this King of the Jungle reigned over a vast territory stretching from Turkey to Russia. Today, sadly, their habitat is disappearing tigers occupy just seven percent of their historic range. Moreover, three sub-species of tigers Bali, Javan and Caspian have gone extinct in the past 70 years; a fourth one, the South China tiger, has not been seen in the wild in a quarter of a century.

Whenever a tiger dies, the government should, instead of cremeting its remains, must fossilize it and freeze its embriyos so that when the tiger becomes extinct our future generations can bring it back to life.

We'll crave to hear another roar
as the world sleeps, while poachers score
the fierce eyes hav turned to scared looks
as the preyer is preyed into deadly hooks
the dinosaurs story will itself enact
but we can change the scenario the day we act! ! !
lord save tigers! ! !

I agree. But not only tigers, equal attention should be given to all wild life creatures. To save tigers, we need to protect the forest habitats across Asia where they live. And by saving these places, we will not only allow tigers to roam freely, but also many other endangered species that live there and form the very thing that makes our planet unique.
