BECAUSE OUR NATIONAL ANIMAL DESERVES It’s NATION’S SUPPORT
It’s not too late, it’s time to take initiatives to protect our national Animal. As recently as 100 years ago, close to 100,000 wild tigers roamed across Asia. Today, about 3,900 tigers are left in the wild, occupying a mere four percent of their former range.
This catastrophic population decline is driven by a range of threats, including poaching for the illegal wildlife trade, over hunting of prey species by local people, habitat loss and fragmentation, and human-tiger conflict.
