This is a post inspired by the new campaign launched by Aircel (In partnership with WWF India) to ‘Save our Tigers’.
It’s so sad to learn that the estimated number of Tigers currently in India count to just 1411. At the start of this century, the entire world has around 1 lakh Tigers with India alone having 40000 Tigers in the wild. Increase in population meant that people would fight for place to live against the wild and hence, the decrease in the number. Keeping aside the fact that hunting wild animals used to be a sport for the ‘Maharajas’.
If we at least don’t ACT now, our future generation may well put Tigers besides Dinosaurs’ and learn about them as extinguished animals.
What can you do?
