Tears flowing from bloody eyes by amandas-sketches Tears flowing from bloody eyes by amandas-sketches
Whispers say that my fight is in vein,
“Tigers will die under humanity’s reign.
Tooth and claw, they cannot win,
They cannot pierce unholy skin.

Tears are flowing from bloody eyes.
Your hope is only made of lies.
Put down the sword and embrace their doom.
A world of steel grows in the womb.”


Section of the literature Bagh Sevak by *HeWhoWalksWithTigers

DID YOU KNOW...?

:bulletorange: In the past 100 years wild tiger numbers have declined 97%. There may be as few as 3,200 wild tigers left in existence, the lowest number ever recorded.

:bulletblack: Three tiger subspecies (Bali, Javan and Caspian) have already gone extinct and a fourth (the South China tiger) is on its way.

:bulletorange: Illegal poaching is the primary cause of the tiger's decline, driven by black market demand for tiger skins, bones and organs.

:bulletblack: The wild tiger once roamed throughout much of Asia. Today, this magnificent cat remains in just 7% of its original habitat.

:bulletorange:Shrinking tiger habitat is becoming increasingly fragmented due to logging and commercial plantations.
If tigers and their habitats continue to decline at the current rate, a world without wild tigers could be a tragic reality in just a few short decades.

To find out how to help Tigers, visit save-tigers-now.org or find a local sanctuary to volunteer at. If you don't have the time, donate money. If your broke, like me, help spread awareness and do some research. Try finding ways to help the environment more. Don't use styrophome, recycle your cans and bottles and walk or ride your bike more instead of your car. We only get one species in a lifetime, lets help preserve and protect them...not just tigers.

This makes me sad... my class actually raised a ton of money to help support the South China Tiger last year. I think that we were able to sponsor around five or six tigers for a few years from what we raised. I wish I could have done more personally though. There are so many species in trouble that it is hard for me to pick just one to help, but obviously the best help would be if I just concentrated on one... :(

I believe the South China Tiger is no longer in the wild. If there are, there are VERY few left, it's even hard to find pictures of the South China Tiger, I tried. TAT Poor little guy. I am glad your class did that.

I'm glad we did it too. The tigers we sponsored 'belonged' to the only real organization protecting them and their habitat. They have a kind of reserve for the tigers. I believe that they have fewer than twenty, and they are trying to keep them wild so to speak. I am pretty sure that they mentioned something about their being less than 100 South China Tigers left in the wild, if that and something like as few as 10 or so tigers was expected to be the actual wild population... I forgot the name of them though. I will have to look it up again. Anyway, most other organizations that claim to be protecting the animals and their habitat are actually slaughtering the creatures for their pelts and bones to use in medicine.

Haha, long comment. xD
